@TwitterSupport why's it taking me up to 2 days to tweet one post with a brief film clip? What's going on?
What happens is I post the film clip then for 1 or 2 days it gets stuck at about 90% uploaded? Seems like #censorship to me? Can you look into it please?
Are you aware of our rights as citizens to express our opinions unhindered under both the US #1A and UN #Article19 ? ImageImage
.... so that means I can't tweet while the previous tweet is 'uploading' [censored]
Seems like nothing has changed on this platform?
Correct me if I'm wrong 🤔

This #InternationalWomensDay2022 let’s revisit the progressive judgments of the Indian Courts reaffirming the rights of the women and providing them better protection of the law.

Ministry of Home Affairs in India & right-wing social media trolls identified as "Modi's Yoddhas" have been termed as 2 of the 20 worst digital predators in 2020 by @RSF_inter, an NGO that specialises in the defense of #mediafreedom. @PIBHomeAffairs (1/4)…
We @AIIndia have similar findings on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir and online violence faced by women in India. The 213 days long internet shutdown in J&K clearly contributed to India's presence on this list along with the incessant trolling faced by women in India. (2/4)
.@AIIndia's study found that 1 in every 7 tweets that mentioned #womenpoliticians in India was 'problematic' or 'abusive'. The situation is terrible with a shrinking space for dissent & unlawful surveillance against #HumanRightsDefenders through spyware & WhatsApp targeting.(3/4)

Justice NV Ramana cites Charles Dickens as he starts his judgment.

Although cherished in our heart as a “Paradise on Earth”, the history of this beautiful land is etched with violence and militancy. While the mountains of Himalayas spell tranquillity, yet blood is shed every day.
