Twitter has become one of the primary news sources for many (including me). It has also enabled a large number of folks to ask questions, which are not always easier to ask otherwise. But, the algorithms which decide which all tweets to show in the timeline behave based on the mood of the company. They can decide what kind of information you can see and what you can not. For example, it stopped showing almost any tweets related to infosec in my timeline.

Recently following orders from the Indian Government, Twitter decided to remove more than a million tweets related to Kashmir. In case you don't know what is going on, Kashmir is under siege from August 5, and all sorts of human rights violation happening there. The state still does not have any Internet connection due to the forced shutdown by the government.
