RaGa bemoans drop in Twitter followers; Twitter rebuts, denies govt pressure

There is a fresh faceoff brewing between Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and Twitter. The social media site has responded to the allegations posed by Rahul Gandhi in a letter on December 27, 2021. Rahul Gandhi had claimed that Twitter was limiting his followers under government pressure since August last year. Addressing his letter to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, Rahul had said, "You have an enormous responsibility to ensure that Twitter does not actively help in the growth of authoritarianism in India." A Twitter spokesperson has claimed that follower counts are meaningful and accurate and dismissed any complicity with the government. "Twitter has a zero-tolerance approach to platform manipulation and spam," the spokesperson said. Remember, in August last year, Rahul Gandhi's Twitter account was briefly suspended after he tweeted a photograph of the family of a rape victim in Delhi. Watch for more details.
