Twitter suspended these accounts along with Koo Account, know the reason
Twitter Suspended Koo Account: Twitter owner Elon Musk has suspended the account of the Indian microblogging platform Koo.
Twitter Suspended Koo Account: Ever since Alan took over the command of microblogging site Twitter, many new policies are being issued on this platform. With many changes, Elon Musk is also suspending the accounts of the users on the platform. This time the company has also suspended the account of Indian microblogging platform Koo.
Regarding this, Mayank Bidawatka, co-founder of the microblogging platform, said on Twitter, “I forgot. there’s more! – Banning Mastodon account. – Not allowing Mastodon links saying it is unsafe. – Banning the iconic handle of Koo. I mean seriously. How much more control does a man need?”
Mastodon is the social media rival of Twitter. In a series of tweets, Bidawatka questioned the rationale behind suspending the @kooeminence account, which has been set up a few days back for queries by celebrities and VIPs who want to use the Indian social media platform.
While promoting Koo, Bidawatka further said that the homegrown microblogging platform is the best alternative to Twitter. He said that “It is because of you and millions of other users like us that we are where we are. Let’s not stoke this man’s ego.”
Bidawatka also said, “Guess what else! Suddenly, almost suddenly #Elon Is Destroying Twitter has been dropped from the trending section. Twitter is a publisher. There is no platform anymore!”
This comes a day after Twitter suspended the accounts of nearly half a dozen prominent journalists. Those who were covering the social media site and Musk said they violated rules against “doxing”.
We’ve never created policies out of thin air. Everything is user focused and transparent. It’s the most inclusive platform. It’s time to take action instead of just discussing. This won’t stop here unless we make it!@oliverdarcy @tculpan @Kantrowitz
