Microblogging platform Twitter on Monday withheld multiple accounts, including those linked with the ongoing farmers' protest along the borders of Delhi borders against the new central farm laws.

According to Twitter, when an account is withheld it means the social media platform was compelled to withhold the entire account specified (e.g, @username) in response to a valid legal demand, such as a court order.
