Twitter Moves Modi Govt To CourtIn an interesting turn of events, Twitter is suing the Narendra Modi-led Indian government over the recent orders from Indian IT ministry to Twitter to take down some of the content that was allegedly against the government.

The US-based social media giant has stated that the Indian government is exercising abuse of power as it ordered Twitter to take down selective content and warned of criminal action if they didn’t do so.

The government has reportedly asked Twitter to take down the tweets that were critical of government’s handling of Covid situation in the country.

Twitter has now sued the Modi government and is seeking judicial review of the new regulations, citing sheer abuse of power.

The government of India is yet to react to Twitter’s surprising new move.
