The truth about Saudi Arabia is often shrouded in mystery.
While the regime remains an ally of the U.K. and U.S., its human rights abuses and (intentional or otherwise) funding of terrorism have caused controversy. The Saudi government aims to keep these issues covered up. However, the ITV documentary “Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered” attempted to shed light on what it is like to live in the secretive Kingdom.
This attempt was immediately countered by a pro-Saudi Twitter account which could possibly be connected to the Saudi regime.
“Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered “aired at 10:50 on 22nd February. By 2:00am on February 23rd, a Twitter account had appeared — @Basics-of-Saudi — which describes itself as a “not-for-profit charitable-organisation.”
A scroll-down reveals the account was created on 22nd February — the same day “Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered” first aired. Its stated aim is “countering malicious propaganda and developing a greater understanding between Saudi-Arabia & Western-world.”
