Twitter has suspended 5,000 Congress accounts

New Delhi: The Congress party's official Twitter handle has been locked since last night, according to the party. The Twitter accounts of five additional top party figures have also been shut since Wednesday night, according to the party.According to reports, the account was suspended for breaking the microblogging platform's regulations. Congress, on the other hand, has claimed that the government is conspiring to silence the opposition.

The Congress has posted a screenshot of its Twitter account on its official Facebook page, showing that the account has been locked for publishing Rahul Gandhi's tweet, which also violated Twitter's terms of service."Twitter is responding in response to government pressure. It has already deactivated 5000 of our leaders' and workers' accounts across India. They need to understand that we can't be swayed by Twitter or the government ", according to Rohan Gupta, AICC's Social Media Head.

After tweeting a photograph of the parents of a nine-year-old Dalit girl who was allegedly raped and died at a cremation in Southwest Delhi on August 1, Twitter suspended Rahul Gandhi's account.A Twitter executive spoke with ABP News about why the microblogging platform took such drastic measures.

He stated, " The Twitter Rules are enforced judiciously and impartially for everyone on our service. We have taken proactive action on several hundred Tweets that posted an image that violated our Rules and may continue to do so in line with our range of enforcement options. Certain types of private information carry higher risks than others, and our aim is always to protect individuals’ privacy and safety. We strongly encourage everyone on the service to familiarise themselves with the Twitter Rules and report anything they believe is in violation. "

He also discussed how Twitter responded after Rahul Gandhi's post revealed the rape victim's parents' identities. 

  • As indicated in the Twitter Help Center, if a Tweet is deemed to be in violation of the Twitter Rules and has not been erased by the account holder, we hide it behind a notification and lock the account until the Tweet is removed or the appeal is successfully handled.

  • NCPCR notified us about particular content on our platform that purportedly revealed the names of the parents of an alleged sexual assault victim (and a juvenile). We examined it in light of Twitter's rules and regulations, as well as the concerns raised under Indian law.
