The government aims to buy software to strengthen its ability to track online networks and monitor online activity while planning a cyber law that will expand powers to pry into private communications.
The beefing up of powers over the online world come as authorities are increasingly targeting social media for violations of a law that makes it a crime to defame, insult or threaten the king, queen, heir to the throne or regent.
The Digital Economy Ministry aims to spend 128.56 million baht on software including a "social network data analysis system" to monitor and map individuals and relationships among more than one million online users, according to a ministry document seen by Reuters.
