Twitter has suspended the handle of one of the India’s largest news agencies ANI, citing a violation of Twitter rules due to the account being less than 13 years old.

ANI's editor, Smita Prakash, took to Twitter and wrote, “So those who follow @ANI bad news, @Twitter has locked out India’s largest news agency which has 7.6 million followers and sent this mail - under 13 years of age! Our gold tick was taken away, substituted with blue tick and now locked out. @elonmusk (sic).”


ANI has confirmed that its other Twitter handle, @ani_digital, is still active, and the agency will be tweeting all news from its other verified handles until the main ANI handle is restored. It is unclear at this time how long the suspension will last, and what specific rule ANI has violated.
