Twitter withholds tweet worldwide after legal demand from India’s government

Apr 10, 2023 | Political News

Twitter globally withheld a tweet by an Indian Home Minister in response to a “legal demand.” The news was shared by Journalist and Right to Information (RTI) activist Saurav Das, who posted screenshots of two tweets, one of which was a quoted Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah with a notice from the social media platform that said the content had been withheld in “worldwide.”

This is a first as Twitter normally restricts content in the territory that the legal demand has come from unless the tweet has violated the platform's Terms of Service.
