A Closely Observed Incident of Violation of Freedom of speech
I assume that you all are aware about True Indology Twitter Handle, I am not going in past to recollect how it has helped to clearly put the truth across many narrative of Historical events. But what happened last week was shocking to me as well many thousands followers of True Indology as well rest of the mass of twitter India.
I am have some observation about the whole phenomena which I am trying to collect in this post. First thing that came to my mind is @D_Roopa_IPS used the contact to get True Indology banned proved that Any org. in India can made corrupt at will of The So called IPS/IAS Officers! Along with this step Twitter India lost LOTs of respect as an independent network by making this possible to happen
To True Indology & Supporters, Social networks are no longer social! Micro Blogs are no longer independent.
SM has not stopped being social as soon as People like @D_Roopa_IPS started asking people for their real identity or else encountered digitally!
I do miss those early days when we were anonymous, getting to know strangers through common interests and exchanging ideas, had always a healthy debate without no clash of ego and still had 100x more fun.
Gone are the days when none got offended by truth!
Its not just twitter or Facebook getting like your lousy neighbor, its about misuse of power to supress the voice of millions! its "if you cant argue, kill the person" mentality. These are not char. of digital discourse a society would have in this century.
This digital Acts of people like @D_Roopa_IPS is highly alarming, its more dangerous than banning a book or booking someone for hate speech. This are signs that you are not having absolute freedom of expression even if you have not violated any rules.
I suspect downfall of twitter's integrity at this moment.
Being a close observer the system, policies and implication of digital humanity and I think its time to announce that everything is not ok, somewhere a person who is innocent, hardworking and right is hurt a lot!
Now lets compare why Integrity matters a most for platform like twitter.
