RS Prasad – Union Minister:
Something highly peculiar happened today.
Twitter denied access to my account for almost an hour on the alleged ground that there was a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of the USA and subsequently they allowed me to access the account.
Twitter’s actions indicate that they are not the harbinger of free speech that they claim to be but are only interested in running their own agenda, with the threat that if you do not tow the line they draw, they will arbitrarily remove you from their platform.
No matter what any platform does they will have to abide by the new IT Rules fully and there shall be no compromise on that.
