The government has sent a notice to Twitter for reinstating a number of accounts that were supporting the farmers’ protests despite the IT Ministry directive to block these and warning it of consequences “of non-compliance of directions issued under section 69A of the Act”.

Around 100 Twitter accounts and 150 tweets related to the farmers' protests went off the microblogging platform on Monday morning as the IT Ministry directed Twitter to remove these accounts.
