Twitter has blocked several accounts in India, including the handle of polling app 'MyVoteToday', in its crackdown on bots, trolls, and fake accounts. The polling app had, recently asked people who they want to be 'silenced' and listed options of chief ministers, Opposition politicians and journalists, among others.

          A Twitter spokesperson said that it would "not tolerate behaviour that harasses, intimidates or uses fear to silence another person's voice" but declined to comment on any individual account.

          "This account has been suspended," is a response one got when the 'MyVoteToday' handle is searched on Twitter. Also, 27 other handles run by the promoter of 'MyVoteToday' have been blocked.
