According to reports, on June 6, Twitter had received a legal request by the Indian government to take action on four Twitter accounts, including Jazzy B. In this regard, a Twitter spokesperson has informed that when Twitter receives a valid legal request, the company reviews it under both Twitter rules and local laws.
The spokesperson further informed that if the content violates the rules of Twitter, it is removed from the platform. At the same time, if it is found illegal in a jurisdiction, but it does not violate the rules of Twitter… then its access is blocked only in India.
Something similar happened in the case of Jazzy B, his account was blocked only in India.
Reports suggest that Jazzy B was constantly tweeting in support of the farmers’ movement.
Let us tell you, even before this, after the legal notice of the Government of India, more than 500 accounts were suspended on Twitter, while access to more than 100 accounts was blocked. At that time the reason behind the closure of these accounts was given that these accounts were spreading false information and inflammatory content through microblogging website.
