Twitter pushes back against demands from the Center!!

Twitter pushes back against demands from the Center!!Only 11.8 percent of such requests were complied with by Twitter in India, compared to 36.3 percent from July to December 2019. The worldwide compliance rate was as high as 54.1%, one of the lowest rates among nations with a significant number of removal requests.

The Twitter vs. Centre controversy centres on issues of online speech rights. On June 28, the Centre ordered Twitter to block dozens of accounts and posts locally, including several that made reference to a report about India’s “declining internet freedoms.” The government demanded that Twitter remove tweets from the US research tank Freedom House from last year that highlighted the “detention” of Indian people for criticising government policies on social media and the use of internet outages to “stifle dissent.”

Between July-Dec 2019 and January-June 2021, Twitter’s compliance rate with such demands declined as the number of material removal requests by the government raised.

The Indian government and social media juggernaut Twitter are at odds once more. In the most recent escalation, the microblogging site filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to have many tweets removed on Tuesday in the Karnataka High Court. While the government asserts that all social media companies have an “unambiguous commitment to comply with our laws and rules,” Twitter claims that some of the takedown orders amounted to an abuse of power.
