The account of the Indian microblogging service Koo has been suspended by the microblogging website Twitter. Without providing a comprehensive justification, Twitter suspended one of Koo’s accounts for breaking its rules.
The Koo account of the Indian microblogging and social networking site was disabled by Twitter on Friday. This occurs as renowned international journalists’ accounts continue to be suspended.
The billionaire, who was born in South Africa, decided on December 15 that any accounts engaging in “doxxing” will be suspended. Doxxing is the act of disclosing someone’s identity or personal information in an anonymous account.
Koo co-founder Mayank Bidawatka tweeted in response to the suspension, saying that “Twitter is a publisher not a platform anymore.” Additionally, he mentioned how the trending section abruptly removed the hashtag #ElonsDestroyingTwitter.
This is not the first such event; Musk has faced strong criticism for his conduct regarding account suspension. Without advanced warning, journalists from CNN, The New York Times, and The Washington Post were removed off the site.
The posting of “live location information, including information shared on Twitter directly or links to 3rd-party URL(s) of travel routes” is now prohibited according to Twitter’s new policy, which was published on Thursday (local time).
In the meantime, Musk has been threatened with sanctions by the UN and the EU over Twitter’s activities.
