Why Facebook, Twitter, Instagram could be banned in India from tomorrow?

Business Today

If these social media platforms fail to accept govt guidelines, they risk losing status as social media platforms and protections as intermediaries. Government can also take action against them as per the law of the land for not following the rules

Social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Instagram may face ban in India if they fail to comply with the new intermediary guidelines for social media platforms. The three-month deadline given by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MEITy) to accept these guidelines ends today i.e. May 25 but none of the giants have so far accepted the new regulations. The rules will be effective from tomorrow despite these companies seeking a total six-month delay in their implementation.

Homegrown social media platform , which is the Indian version of Twitter, is the only platform that has so far accepted the Centre's intermediary guidelines.

Funny how Twitter plays good boy with the small, inconsequential developing countries like Ghana and co, but sees the rising, developing giants like India and Nigeria, as enemies to fight with.

The westerners don't want the darkies to be too powerful, just small, smiley and compliant.

Kiss teeth.

What’s with this new trend of social media platform banning.


This is a clear difference between a grown up country n backward one. Social media regulatory was dish out. But here, Oga lai has been waiting for this for months so he could exert his power.


Shame!

You are actually not smart. Twitter is what it is today because of public interactions and opinions. If these move away from Twitter, Dorsey would be nothing but a rich nobody.

He played himself when Twitter started becoming opinionated. Other governments would join Nigeria. States in the USA are already crafting rules against big media.

Twitter is toast. Dorsey is basically an arsehole who thinks he's untouchable.

This is one of the paid updates.
Trying to juxtapose us with India undecided imagine India of all nations.

By the end of Buhari's Dictatorship, Nigerians would start seeing Sudan as Canada.

This useless Op is trying everything to justify his useless pay master madness.

India gave them 3 months to adjust or obliged to their policy, how many weeks did your tyranny pay Master gave?

If Nigeria want to copy those countries that banned social media,we should also copy their developmental strides. You can't copy those policies that suits you & are detrimental to your citizens & discard the ones that will elevate the quality of life of your people. Copy everything.

Bad side: People go wonder why some 9ja boys dey cry dey waka for road but, dem no go understand say "working boys" don dey lose client.
Good side: At least "working boys" go fit rest small from all those sex starved Indian men wey dey always disturb for nude pictures. Ordinary "Hello" wey working boys go send client, dem go don blast am with plenty gbolaga pictures. grin No be small thing working boys dey see.
Anyway, No wahala, they should come to Nairaland. We no dey pursue anybody
