Significantly, in the last one month, many cases of confrontation between Twitter and the government have come to the fore. Two days ago, Twitter blocked the accounts of IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Parliamentary Committee Chairman and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor for an hour. At the same time, a few days ago in Ghaziabad, the head of Twitter India was called for questioning after registering an FIR for spreading misleading information in the case of beating of a Muslim elder.
At the same time, the matter of removing blue ticks from verified accounts of some RSS leaders by Twitter was also heated. The government has withdrawn the exemption given to Twitter from legal action for not implementing the new IT rules applicable to digital companies within the May 26 deadline. In such a situation, he may have to face legal action for any objectionable content on his platform.
Union Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recently asked social media forums not to give speeches to India on “freedom of speech” and “democracy” and reiterated that if “these profit making companies” want to make money in India So they have to follow the “Constitution of India and Indian Laws”.
Twitter didn’t let me access my account for almost an hour: Ravi Shankar Prasad
Delivering a lecture at an event, Prasad had said that the new Information Technology (IT) guidelines are not related to the use of social media but deal with “misuse” and “misuse” of social media platforms. He said the purpose of these laws is to regulate content on social media firms and to make Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter more accountable to legal requests made to expedite the removal of posts and to share details of originators of messages. is.
