    Modi once raided Twitter offices to get them to delete tweets.

    No that is not true.

    I'd to login to make a reply here, These days I rarely participate in Tildes after that stay away from screen project. Work has taken a toll and there is no work from home anymore. Anyway not related to topic. I was saying Modi government did not raid Twitter headquarters to delete some tweets. Not at all what happened.

    So Twitter has that feature where they can flag any tweet for spreading misinformation and you can click on there to read up more on real authentic information verified by trustworthy sources. Twitter is not doing the legwork here, they rely on third parties to rectify the misinformation and flag the tweets based on that.

    I'm not going into the events before the tweets were flagged misinformation because that is too political and not important here. For a basic understanding current Indian government is headed by group of parties where BJP (Modi's party) has majority seats and Congress is the opposition leader. Now a spokesperson of BJP made a tweet against the opposition party Congress related to ongoing political event. This tweet is then flagged by Twitter as misinformation - based on complaint made by the opposition party Congress. This obviously raised questions what information Congress gave Twitter to take this action. Twitter doesn't respond. A notice is issued to Twitter over explanation for its manipulated tag on the tweets. It's interesting that Twitter had no other source other then Congress party denying the claims made in tweet at the time. There sole source was Congress party on whom the acquisition was made which they didn't accept. Investigation police demands Twitter to share the material information they have to help with the investigation. They send them a notice too.

    At this point we get to the raid thing that was initially believed to be related with above stuff. It was shown with sensalised headlines and shaky blurry visuals. A day later it was clarified to be not a raid but merely a routine process.

    News media went silent quickly and further reporting was not given same prime time treatment. But the damage was already done. International media published the news with further adding their own takes.

    IMO Twitter was at fault here for taking side of an opposition party of biggest democracy in World based solely on the word of the said opposition party and not properly communicating with Government when asked for clarification.

    Epic doesn’t support Linux like Steam does. Use Lutris to install epic launcher first. It’s not guaranteed to work though.

    WB did take the risk and released Tenet in theaters. AMC response is so strange. Like they are showing fake concern for WB profits.
