Transparency an issue after internet blockade in Kashmir

The aftermath of revoking Article 370 has made the government to issue monthly blocking orders to Twitter, with all of the censorship requests aimed at Kashmir-related content. 

The accounts that had been blocked in August is still low in number.

However, the official orders and media reportage raises questions over the transparency and accountability of the official procedure for taking down online content. 

Out of the eight accounts that India had reportedly wanted to be blocked, two are untouched. One of them was taken down for Indian users on request of the Modi government. 

The other appears to have been suspended because they have violated Twitter’s terms of service. This implies that these accounts may come back online later if they can successfully appeal their suspension order.
