Burma's Suu Kyi is'too busy' to use Facebook and Tweeters.
Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi says she has been too preoccupied to use Facebook and Twitter since her escape from prison. Suu Kyi has been under home confinement for years without a phone or connection to the public network. If I twittered and so on, it would take so much time," she said to the AFP newswire from her Rangoon political group.
Facebook in particular is very much loved in Burma, although the speed of the web can be sluggish. However, while the new Burmese civil leader recently struck Aung San Suu Kyi, the military-backed agencies have not lifted their warnings to keep her out of the political arena.

It was found to have offended the military leader by proposing that Aung San Suu Kyi's sword be wrapped around his android. This Facebook mail was posted in October after the Armed Forces rebranded their new uniforms. "Why don't you put her coffin around your head?"
On another case, the well-known campaigner Patrick Khum Jaa Lee is waiting for the case after he was charged with criticizing the military on Facebook.

Burma blocks UN spacecraft as collective burial ground in Rakhine
In January, Yanghee Lee visited Myanmar to check on Myanmar's humanitarian situation, which included allegations of attack on Rohingya Muslims in the state of Rakhine. Mrs. Lee said that the clampdown to stop her "something terrible" happened in Rakhine. Myanmar officials said on Tuesday that they found 10 corpses in a massive tomb in a town there.
In August violent acts broke out in the state after Rohingya Arsa assaulted militant policemen and the armed forces reacted with force. More than 650,000 Rohingya - about two third of the total populace - have escaped to Bangladesh since then. Mrs Lee said to the BBC that she was "very sad" about the choice to stop her.
BBC Burma District Undersecretary Tin Maung Swe said that Ms Lee had "done great harm to Myanmar" and said her Rakhine account was "biased, deceptive and unilateral". Meanwhile, Myanmar's army is examining 10 of Myanmar's bones after they were found in a collective burial ground in the town of Inn Din near Maungdaw, one of the areas most affected by the recent war.
Referring to the tomb on Facebook, the military said it would examine "the truths behind the tomb" and promised that if they were part of it, members of the guard would be blamed. Two Reuters correspondents Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were arrested in Myanmar last weekend. According to press coverage, they received photographs and documentation from the inhabitants of Inn Din, the town where the collective tomb was found.
Walt Lone's woman, Pan Ei Mon, said to the BBC Burmese that she was concerned and sad about his bail.
