Social media becoming 'disruptive force' - Sri Lankan PM

Sri Lanka's prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Thursday said that social media was becoming a disruptive force globally. 

“The new media including social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and other websites are becoming global disruptive forces. We have seen the potential of this new media to de-establish nations and affect series of changes,” he was quoted by Colombo papers as saying whilst speaking at the Colombo Defence Seminar, organised by the Sri Lankan military. 

“The nature of warfare are shifting from physical to online, or into the increased use of computers electromagnetism and artificial intelligence in commercial, economic, military and all other cutting-edge activities,” he added.
