Twitter has blocked four accounts in India - including one belonging to Canadian-Punjabi singer Jazzy B, who has frequently tweeted in support of farmers protesting the government's agriculture laws and, in December last year, joined thousands camped on the borders of the national capital.

"When we receive a valid legal request, we review it under both the Twitter Rules and local law.

If the content violates Twitter's rules the content will be removed from the service.

"In all cases, we notify the account holder directly so they're aware that we've received a legal order pertaining to the account.

We notify the user(s) by sending a message to the email address associated with the account(s), if available," the statement added.

Popular singer Jazzy B's Twitter account blocked over a legal demand by the government.

This is not the first time Twitter has been told to block accounts tweeting on the farmers' protests. »
