Twitter vs Indian Govt: Implications for India

We are hosting a MEDIANAMA MEMBERS ONLY CALL on June 24, to discuss the implications of the face-off between Twitter and the Indian government for the Internet in India. This event is open exclusively for MediaNama’s subscribers to attend.

This call is being held in the backdrop of the Information Technology Rules 2021, and the events that preceded it. There is also an apparent increase in take-down requests being sent to platforms.

MediaNama’s coverage of the IT Rules is here.

While these developments might seem to be specific to a company and a particular time period, we believe that it follows at least a couple of years of developments, and might be a sign of things to come.

What we’ll discuss on this call:

  • Trends in technology policy prior to the IT Rules 2021
  • Some key points related to the IT Rules 2021
  • Twitter specific developments
  • Geopolitical developments related to platform regulation, and where India stands
  • Post IT Rules

MediaNama Subscribers will receive an invitation to RSVP via email. In case you haven’t received it, please check your spam folder. If you still haven’t received it, please let us know at hello@medianama.com.

Date: June 24 (Thursday), 2021
Proposed Schedule:
2:00 – 2:10 PM: Check-in
2:10 – 2:40 PM: Presentation on Twitter vs Indian Government
2:40 to up to 3.30: Discussion and Q&A

MediaNama’s mission is to help build a digital ecosystem which is open, fair, global and competitive.
