In Twitter's Conflict With Indian Government, Big New Legal Move
Twitter wants to reverse Indian government orders that it take down certain content from its social media platforms, according to a source. This is in response to a legal challenge that alleges abuses of power.
New Delhi has been in an increasing confrontation with the U.S.
Indian authorities have asked Twitter to remove content from its accounts over the last year. This includes posts that support an independent Sikh state and tweets criticizing the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
