Twitter locks Congress 's offi al handle
NEW DELHI: Twitter on Thursday locked the offi al handle of Congress stating that the handle violated rules of the microblogging site.
The Congress took to another social media platform Facebook to inform about Twitter's locking after the account.
"When our leaders were put in jails, we were not scared then why would we be afraid of closing our Twitter accounts now. We are Congress, this is the message of the people, we will fight, we will keep fighting. If it is a crime to raise our voice to get justice for the rape victim girl, then we will do this crime a hundred times. Jai Hind... Satyamev Jayate," said the 's post on Facebook.
该党在Facebook上写道：“当我们的领导人被关进监 狱时，我们并不害怕，为什么我们现在要害怕关闭我们的推特账户呢？我们是国大党，这是人民的呼声，我们将战斗，我们将继续战斗。如果为被强奸的女孩伸张正义是一种罪行，那么我们会犯一百次这样的罪行。印度必胜……Satyamev Jayate。”
Reacting to the development, Social Media Head of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Rohan Gupta said that nothing will deter the from raising the voice of the people.
He alleged that Twitter while acting under the go nment's pressure, has blocked the accounts of more than 5,000 leaders and workers across India.
Raising questions on microblogging site's action, Gupta said, "Twitter has blocked its account for violation of rules Twitter acting under go nment pressure. Twitter is acting under the go nment's pressure. If it is a violation of Twitter policy, then why the photo of the (Victim's) family was there on the Scheduled Caste (SC) commission handle from August 2 to August 5."
On August 7, Twitter had blocked Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's Twitter account which remains locked for over five days now.
The microblogging site on Wednesday night also suspended the accounts of several Congress members, including general secretary (organisation) KC Venugopal, AICC officebearers Ajay Maken, Sushmita Dev and Randeep Surjew and Lok Sabha MP and AICC Telangana in-charge Manickam Tagore. The Twitter handle of Rahul’s personal staffer KB Byju was also suspended.

Congress should start their own App and name it P-App-u. No one will object.
Why is everyone giving so much importance to Twitter? A small min ity of Indian's are on twitter and a even lesser number read the tweets of the po iticians. It is just one big ego trip by the po iticians to show off the number of followers which they have.
what's the use of it when people is not listening to this idiot's
