Twitter permanently suspends Kangana Ranaut's account

MUMBAI (Dunya News) – Micro-blogging platform Twitter has permanently suspended the account of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut over a controversial post related to the violence in Bengal.

The Twitter spokesman stated, “The actor’s account repeatedly violated Twitter policy on hateful conduct and abusive behavior.”

"As explained in our abusive behaviour policy, you may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else s voice," he added.

In a tweet that prompted the suspension, the actress urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "tame" Mamata Banerjee using his "Virat Roop" from "early 2000s" in Bengal. She was reacting to a tweet by journalist-politician Swapan Dasgupta on the violence in Bengal after election results.
