Twitter deleted more than 50 posts at the request of the Indian government


The microblogging site Twitter has deleted more than 50 posts at the behest of the Indian government. Most of this is due to the failure of the Indian government to deal with Corona. The Hindu, a technology website in India, quoted The Hindu as saying.

The posts were made by Twitter users criticizing the central government of India over the oxygen and bed crisis in the hospital and the widespread corona infection.

It is also learned that posts criticizing Kumbh Mela in the epidemic are also on the list to be deleted. However, users outside India will see the posts.

The list also includes verified Twitter accounts of Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera, MP Reventh Reddy, West Bengal Minister Malay Ghatak, ABP News Editor Pankaj Jha, actor Binit Kumar Singh, film director Abinash Das and former journalist and film director Binod Kapri.

The details of the order received from Twitter from the Government of India are detailed in the database of Lumen, a project of the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

Last February, the central government of India requested the authorities of the microblogging site to delete 1,200 Twitter accounts criticizing the peasant movement.
