New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has accused Twitter of working under pressure from the government. Social media platforms are limiting the number of their followers. However, Twitter responded to Rahul Gandhi's allegations, saying that there have been constant efforts to ensure a secure platform and reliable accounts. Every week, accounts in millions are also deleted for violating the rules, due to which the number of followers can be seen fluctuating. At the same time, now people on social media are giving different reactions to the allegations made on Twitter.
