Why are Twitter Policies Strict in India? Elon Musk’s Reply: Better to Choose Compliance rather than His Employees Get into Jail

 In an interview with the BBC the business stalwart and acquirer of Twitter, Elon Musk spoke about strict privacy regulations in India and how it has affected Twitter.


 On Tuesday (April 11, 2023) Musk made some strong statements regarding Twitter's work culture. In contrast with tough compliance with Indian Laws, the billionaire said he would choose compliance rather than get his employees jailed.


Earlier, in November 2022 Musk had iterated about freedom of speech rather than freedom of reach under which hate speeches were being limited in audience.

Now again talking about the documentary BBC on 2002 Gujarat Riots, India: The Modi Question, he referred to the IT Act, 2000 to have limited the hands of the micro-blogging site in displaying content. The documentary was blocked to comply with the law.


Musk doesn't intend to get his employees jailed for non-compliance even if it incentivizes other countries to come up with similar stricter regulations.


This view of Musk becomes particularly relevant in the current scenario when the privacy rules are further amended to impose liability on social media platforms for non-compliance with Press Information Bureau's orders.


Twitter's case on blocking orders by Karnataka Government is also awaiting a decision. Musk continues to reiterate his point as he argues against the Karnataka Government's non-provision of any reason behind blocking orders in the court.


The free speech argument has however sparked a debate as to Musk's action to be particularly directed towards India only and not other countries.
