A recent story out of Delhi has the Twitterverse up in arms (thumbs? pointer fingers? whatever you type with).
Kavita Krishnan, a prominent Delhi-based women’s activist, was attacked viciously during a recent online chat on violence against women on Rediff.com, a leading news site in India.
The account, which goes by the Twitter handle @adgpi, has already attracted more than 3,000 followers, with only 7 tweets (all in English).
Army sources told CNN-IBN that the handle has been in the works for some months, and the account will from this point forward be used to feature all official announcements from the Indian Army.
Twitter has a pretty well-established track record for NOT turning over user data to government entities and for not restricting users’ access – even when the accounts are a half-step shy of criminal.
Why then are folks assuming that Twitter will make an exception for the Indian government?
