Farmers Protest: Comply Or Face Action: Government To Twitter On ‘Farmer Genocide’ Hashtag

Posted on

Farmers Protest: Twitter may face action if it does not comply with the government’s orders, the centre warned on Wednesday, stressing that the social media giant “unilaterally unblocked” accounts and tweets – linked to an objectionable hashtag related to the farmers’ protest – despite its order. On Monday, more than 250 accounts were blocked for tweeting, or retweeting, with the ‘farmer genocide’ hashtag, and making “fake, intimidatory and provocative tweets” in connection with the ongoing farmers’ protest. The use of hashtag is part of “motivated campaign to abuse, inflame and create tension in society on unsubstantiated grounds. Incitement to genocide is not freedom of speech; It is threat to law and order,” the government has insisted.
