Twitter does not comply with Indian government request to take down content

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested Twitter to take down more than 1,000 accounts and posts related to the widespread farmers’ protests against recently enacted agricultural laws. The government alleged that these posts were spreading misinformation about the political situation. Twitter publicly responded that it did not fully comply with the request because it is against Indian media law. The platform claimed that the posts were in line with protected freedoms of speech and expression. The government has threatened to sue the platform, according to Reuters.
