Elon Musk Caves to Pressure From India to Remove BBC Doc Critical of Modi

January 26, 2023

Twitter and YouTube censored a report critical of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in coordination with the government of India. (@derekobrienmp) January 21, 2023Twitter even blocked Indian audiences from seeing two posts by actor John Cusack linking to the documentary. “The documentary has unnerved Mr. Modi as he continues to evade accountability for his complicity in the violence,” Naik, the journalist, said. When Musk took over, Twitter had just a 20 percent compliance rate when it came to Indian government takedown requests. Now, the Indian government’s pressure on Twitter appears to be gaining traction.
