"The basic Twitter account of Al Jazeera has been blocked and we are trying to resolve this issue. Other accounts are operational. The obstacles will continue as they are afraid of truth. We will return," Yasser Abu Hilala, the director-general of the television channel, said on Twitter.
Later in the day, Twitter reinstated the account without any comments regarding the reasons, which had led to the suspension of the broadcaster's Twitter.
"The Twitter account of Al Jazeera's Arabic channel has been restored after being briefly suspended. The Doha-based network said Saturday's suspension appeared to be caused by an 'organized campaign,'" the broadcaster said in a statement.
According to the broadcaster, the ban took place as a result of a "a storm attack" caused by mass complaints on the account from other users. The number of Al Jazeera Twitter subscribers was not also restored at once, as instead of 11 million subscribers, which were counted before the suspension, the meter showed only 2,000 for some time.
Following the move, the Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information closed the office of Al Jazeera and the TV channel lost its broadcasting license in the country. The Saudi ministry accused Al Jazeera of incitement of separatist sentiments in Saudi Arabia.
