The confrontation between Twitter and the Indian government has been the subject of much TV debates and words written in India. Although these developments seem specific to a company and a period of time, we believe that they follow at least a few years of development and could be a sign of the future.

Let us take a step back and examine this situation in the context of everything that has happened on the Indian Internet in recent years. We want to clarify some important questions:

  • Why is this confrontation taking place?
  • What trends have led to these developments?
  • Can this happen on any platform? Could it happen to you
  • How have things changed after the IT rules in 2021?
  • What did Twitter do right? What could Twitter have done better?
  • What are other countries doing?
  • What can we expect from the Indian government in the future?

Suggested schedule:

  • June 24th (Thursday), 2021
  • 2:00 p.m. – 2:10 p.m .: Check-in
  • 2:10 pm – 2:40 pm: Presentation on Twitter vs. Indian government
  • 2:40 pm – 3:30 pm: Discussion and Q&A
