Musk ‘Disagrees’ But X Withholds Accounts Ordered By Centre

| Updated: February 22, 2024 15:53

The Centre has issued orders requiring X, formerly Twitter, to act against some accounts and posts, the Elon Musk-led organisation has claimed, stressing that it disagrees with these actions and that the posts should not be withheld on grounds of freedom of expression. 

The global government affairs team of X said they are unable to publish the Centre’s executive orders due to legal restrictions, but “believe that making them public is essential for transparency”. The Centre is yet to respond to the allegations that were made in a post on X. 

“In compliance with the orders, we will withhold these accounts and posts in India alone. However, we disagree with these actions and maintain that freedom of expression should extend to these posts. Consistent with our position, a writ appeal challenging the Indian government’s blocking orders remains pending. We have also provided the impacted users with notice of these actions in accordance with our policies,” the statement added. 

The microblogging site’s big charge is set to turn into the latest flashpoint in its run-ins with the government over the past few years. Back in 2021, the popular social media platform, then called Twitter and led by a different leadership, had objected to the Centre’s guidelines and expressed concern about the “potential threat to freedom of expression”. The government had then asked the platform to “stop beating around the bush and comply with the laws of the land” instead of “dictating terms” to the world’s largest democracy.
