“Twitter is not doing business in India, it is setting the direction of politics”: Rahul Gandhi hits out at the social media giant

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has taken a sharp attack on Twitter, saying that the company is not doing business in India, it is engaged in deciding India’s politics. Rahul Gandhi said that as a politician, I do not like this at all. Such a step being taken by the company is an attack on the democratic structure of the country.

Rahul Gandhi said, “I have 19 to 20 million followers on Twitter. You are preventing them from having an opinion. This is not only unfair, but it also shows that Twitter is no longer a medium to express your views. Twitter is also toeing with what the central government says. This is a very dangerous thing for common people. If Twitter starts taking political sides then it is not good for them.”

Rahul Gandhi said, “Democracy is under constant attack and we are not being allowed to speak in Parliament. The media is also being kept under control. I used to think that Twitter is the only platform where you can express your views and reach out to crores of people, but it is not like that at all. Twitter is also biased and listens to what the government tells it.”

National Commission for Protection of Child Rights had complained to Twitter
