Minister urges Thais to use Clubhouse app ‘carefully’

The Digital Economy and Society Ministry (DES) is calling on youngsters to be careful when using the “Clubhouse” social-media app, because they may end up involuntarily violating the law.

Clubhouse, an exclusive social-networking app, is suddenly all the rage among Thai netizens. This application became popular because it was launched during the Covid-19 outbreak when most people were forced to stay at home.

Its trendiness was also pushed by celebrity users such as Elon Musk, Jared Leto, Kanye West – and exiled Thai scholar Pavin Chachavalpongpun.

DES Minister Buddhipongse Punnakanta said he has learned that some political groups are using this voice-only app to “share fake news”, which is allegedly causing problems in society.

He warned people not to misuse the app unless they want to be charged with violating the Computer Crime Act.
