1. With regards to the ban on Koo’s account on Twitter its co-founder and CEO Aprameya Radhakrishna questioned their decision, he asked ‘Why was our account closed ? We did not know about its closure. Twitter has not given us any intimation regarding this issue.’ He also tweeted, ‘Koo’s account has been banned.’ Why ? Is it because we are a competitor to Twitter ? What kind of freedom of speech is this and what kind of world are we living in ? What’s going on here, Elon Musk ?”
One of the Koo handles on Twitter just got banned. For what?! Because we compete with Twitter? So? Mastodon also got blocked today. How is this free speech and what world are we living in?
