In 2021, the Nigerian government blocked Twitter, resulting in the launch of Koo, an Indian microblogging platform that was little known outside of India. This was a significant achievement for Koo, which had begun with a focus on Indian languages and a governmentfriendly stance. It was also a victory for the Indian government, which had praised another locally developed technology, BharOS, for taking on Google. However, Indias push for digital sovereignty will have ramifications for the countrys 1.4 billion people, including increased state surveillance and restrictions on online freedoms. India is the worlds second largest smartphone market and has some of the most social media users, but big tech firms have been increasingly targeted by the government.
