Twitter was 'supporting terrorists', matter reached court

New Delhi: Twitter has bowed down to Kashmiri Pandit and Social media veteran journalist Aarti Tikoo. She has unlocked Aarti's blocked handle. About a week ago, Aarti filed a petition against Twitter in the Delhi High Court over a tweet, after which Twitter has now written to her lawyer Mukesh Sharma requesting the founder to withdraw her petition.



According to Twitter, they has restored the account, and now the matter is over. It may be recalled that Aarti Tikoo had posted on December 15 (Friday) seeking help on Twitter about Islamic militants threatening to kill her brother. In her tweet, she wrote, "My brother @TikooSahil_ who lives in Srinagar are being publicly threatened by jihadist terrorists sitting in Kashmir, India and their bosses in Pakistan, UK and USA. Is anyone watching? Are we waiting for these Islamists to be kill or will you take any action against them?'

Just two days later, on December 17, Twitter India 'locked' Aarti Tikoo's handle. Twitter had also sent a notice to Aarti stating that her account could be 'unlocked' if she deletes posts related to threats she is receiving from her brother. Twitter in its notice said, "You cannot promote violence against others based on race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and religion, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious illness. Also, you cannot harass by threatening or otherwise. Aarti Tikoo had approached the Delhi High Court after Twitter indirectly supported the terrorists, after which her account has been restored.
