Tutter describes himself as a ‘swadeshi social network’ and also has Prime Minister Modi’s official Twitter handle, which has all his posts and Twitter pictures on top. However, it is not clear how Tutter verifies its users.

On Monday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made it clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP chief JP Nadda and other party leaders were not present on the so-called tribal version of the social media site Twitter. Amit Malviya, head of the party’s IT cell, said in a tweet on Monday afternoon, ‘Please note that Tutter does not have BJP or its state unit leaders or Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and JP Nadda present. ‘

I tell you that Tutter describes himself as a ‘swadeshi social network’ and also has the official Twitter handle of Prime Minister Modi, with all his posts and Twitter pictures on top. However, it is not clear how Tutter verifies its users.

Another BJP spokesperson Suresh Nakhua attacked the platform, saying, “I think the presence of our leaders on this platform has been cleared by Amit Malviya’s tweet. So now Tutor will make it clear that 1. With whose permission were these platforms built? 2. How are these handles verified? 3. Who is posting on these handles? ‘

The clarification came from the party just a few days ago when BJP MP and head of the party’s youth wing Tejaswi Surya condemned the incident on Twitter through a permanent ban on US President Donald Trump’s Twitter handle. And criticized by social media giants. He said: “Twitter is probably saying that they (Trump) have broken some rules, but I fear that all the big tech companies have exclusive and biased algorithms in data transmission.” So why are we giving them the right to interfere with the authorities? This is the biggest question that democracies should answer.

Tutter’s interface was allegedly created last year, a cross-over between Facebook and Twitter. This platform on its service page says it was created for ‘free speech’. “We believe India should have its own indigenous social network,” the Tutor page said. Without it we are just a digital colony for the American Twitter India Company, no different than the British living in the East India Company’s slavery.
