Twitter Suspends Indian’s Tech Minister Account

TECH DIGEST – The tussle between Twitter and the Indian government just escalated to the next level.

India’s technology minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad, said on Friday that he was denied access to his Twitter account for almost an hour.
“Friends! Something highly peculiar happened today,” the minister said in one of the seven tweets he posted about the incident. “Twitter denied access to my account for almost an hour on the alleged ground that there was a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of the USA and subsequently they allowed me to access the account.”
