IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad claims - Twitter kept my account locked for about an hour

The conflict between Twitter and the central government continues. Meanwhile, today Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has claimed that Twitter kept his account locked for about an hour. Twitter said that you violated the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Later Twitter unlocked the account.

Ravi Shankar Prasad said that no matter what any platform can do, a new law will have to be followed regarding IT. There will be no compromise on this. Twitter's action shows that it is not in favor of freedom of speech, it is only interested in running its agenda.

The Information Technology Minister said that the action of Twitter is against the rules of IT. Twitter did not give me any notice before locking the account. This proves that Twitter does not want to follow the new rules. If Twitter had followed the new rules, it would not have locked anyone's account arbitrarily.

Let us tell you that there has been a dispute between Twitter and the central government for a long time. The government says that Twitter will have to follow the new rule. Under the new rules, large social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp will need to take additional measures. This includes appointment of Chief Compliance Officer, Nodal Officer and Grievance Officer in India etc.

Shash Tharoor's reaction

Congress leader and former minister Shashi Tharoor said on the locking of Ravi Shankar Prasad's account, "Ravi Shankar ji, the same incident happened to me as well. This incident happened when I was the IT minister. Twitter took this action by calling the video of a song objectionable.
