Twitter has suspended the account of the Indian microblogging platform Koo. The Twitter handle @kooeminence was suspended on Friday, following the suspension of several prominent global journalists’ accounts by billionaire Elon Musk-owned Twitter. The accounts includes the New York Times, CNN, and the Washington Post.
Mastodon is Twitter’s social media competitor. In a number of tweets, Bidawatka asked the reason behind suspending the @kooeminence account. Which was only set up a few days ago to answer questions from celebrities and VIPs looking to use the Indian social media platform.
1) Posting publicly available info isn’t doxxing. Why shoot the messenger?.
2)Journalists that posted links did nothing wrong. Posting a link to publicly available info isn’t doxxing the way posting a link to an online article isn’t plagiarism, Koo co-founder Bidawtka said.
3)Leaving spaces without answering journalists is bad.
4)Creating policies out of thin air to suit yourself is worse.
5)Changing your stance every other day is inconsistent.
6)Posting a video of an unknown car on Twitter with the car plate showing – how’s that allowed? he added.
