Twitter will have to obey the Indian government's law, Government encourages people to switch to Koo

Clash between Twitter and the central government is increasing due to the order to close 1178 accounts related to Khalistan-Pakistan . The central government has clearly told the American company that it has to follow Indian law. Also, many politicians and others are switching to Koo app against Twitter.

In a virtual meeting with Twitter Vice President Monique Meshe and Jim Baker, the secretary of Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said,"despite government instructions, fake accounts related to the peasant movement were not closed. This is very unfortunate". Earlier, Twitter replied it cannot fully oblige to the center's order citing violation of the right to freedom of expression and said the Indian government's demand was not in line with the country's laws. Twitter believes in protecting the Freedom of Expression of its users and hence it did not take an action against the accounts of media companies, journalists, social workers and politicians.
