In a dramatic shift of events, Twitter is now stealing its own spotlight as #BanTwitterInIndia is trending on the social networking platform, ever since the Delhi office of Twitter was raided by the Police. In a bizarre turn of events and after countless hashtags calling for bans on innumerable things, this time around it is about Twitter itself. But how did it all started?
Recently, the special cell of Delhi Police raided the Twitter office in the national capital and Gurugram, over an alleged ‘COVID toolkit’ matter.
A few days ago, Twitter flagged some posts as ‘manipulative media’ by the ruling party leaders alleging that Congress is planning to malign the image of the Prime Minister and the Central Government. In regards to the matter, a team of Delhi Police’s Special Cell on Monday knocked the doors of Twitter India’s Delhi and Gurgaon offices to ostensibly serve the social media platform a notice.
This raid by the police made netizens all across the country find themselves having mixed opinions. While some tried their best to trend #BanTwitterInIndia on the platform itself, some stood in support with #IStandWithTwitter.
Apart from this tussle between netizens, some people on the platform even started sharing hilarious Bollywood dialogues that justified the situation.
