Twitter has been accused of bowing to government pressure in India by blocking scores of prominent journalists, politicians and activists from its platform in recent weeks.
The Indian government issued notices to Twitter to remove people in the aftermath of an internet shutdown in Punjab during the search for a fugitive Sikh separatist leader.
Twitter agreed to block more than 120 accounts, including the Canadian politician Jagmeet Singh, the Canadian poet Rupi Kaur, several journalists and an Indian MP. Twitter also blocked the handle of the BBC’s Punjabi bureau.
They should obey the law or not? When in India they should obey Indian law or not? And what if it was a US or UK law that they weren’t obeying in the US or UK? Opinions change then or not?
Seriously, corporations should obey the law or we are still all colonialist? We don’t have to obey those silly brown people in their own country?
