Twitter on Thursday said it was concerned about the “potential threat” to freedom of expression as India’s new social media rules came into effect. The social media firm also flagged “intimidation tactics”, days after the Delhi Police Special Cell visited its office in connection with the “toolkit” controversy, NDTV reported.
