So this can cause a Social media ban in India for big companies.
A Twitter ban in India news:
Twitter is the most useful platform for celebrities, sportsperson, politicians, and other big guns of the community. Not just celebrities or others, government departments share news on Twitter using their social media handles. Local people are tweeting their problems on Twitter and re twitting the others. If Twitter shuts down in India, there will be huge sharing problems in social media platforms. As per the reports, even Twitter has not shown details related to the compliances to the new IT policies. Shortly, this can be a reason for the Twitter ban in India.

Instagram is also a great platform for social media sharing. Instagram is also owned by Facebook and Facebook and Instagram both of them have not accepted the rules of the government.
If they do not follow the rules of the government, they will have to shut down their platforms.

It is a crucial moment for social media companies because if they do not comply with the new rules, they will lose their status, and criminal action can be taken as per the rule of India. As per the news, only Facebook said it aims to comply with the new rules. Thus social media is on the verge of shutting down if they do not follow the rules given by the government.
