JAMMU: Social media giant Twitter has suspended the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha’s official handle for violating the platform’s rules.
The twitter handle, @OfficeeOfLGJandK, now shows the message: “Account suspended” with an explanation that “Twitter suspends accounts that violate the Twitter Rules.”
It is still unclear why the account was suspended. The social media platform suspends accounts over, among other reasons, concerns of privacy and safety of the public, and authenticity of information uploaded. Sinha’s personal account, however, remains functional.
