Speculations that micro-blogging site Twitter often arbitrarily forces people to delete tweets for alleged violations has yet again come to fore. Twitter seems to have now forced ABP News journalist Vikas Bhadauria to delete a tweet about the heinous Murshidabad incident, in which the family of RSS worker was brutally murdered, including a 7-year-old and an unborn child as the woman was 8 months pregnant.

On Friday, ABP News journalist Vikas Bhadauria in a tweet accused the microblogging site of ‘muzzling his pen and journalistic freedom’ after it forced him to delete the tweet about the gruesome murder of RSS worker in Murshidabad, an incident reported which was widely in media.

He further claimed that his account was restored conditionally. “This is nothing but lynching my right to expression,” tweeted Bhadauria after Twitter forced him to delete his tweet on the gruesome Murshidabad murders.

Twitter had earlier asked to remove the tweet posted by ABP news after the micro-blogging site claimed that the post had violated Twitter rules. The Twitter in its notice to the journalist said that the content was ‘gratuitous gore’ which could be harmful if exposed.

Earlier on Thursday, ABP News journalist had posted the details regarding the barbaric incident that had occurred in Murshidabad, in which a 35-year old RSS worker Bandhu Prakash Pal, his pregnant wife Beauty Pal (30) and their eight-year-old son Angan Pal were brutally murdered at their residence.
