Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday tweeted about Indian homegrown app “Koo”. This new development has interestingly come in between the tussle between the Government and Twitter over content censorship, during ongoing farmers protest in India.
“I am now on Koo”, tweeted, Cabinet Minister Piyush Goyal, who holds the charge of Commerce and Industry, Railways, Consumer Affairs, and Food and Public Distribution.”Connect with me on this Indian- micro-blogging platform for real time, exciting and exclusive updates. Let us exchange our ideas on Koo”
Koo was launched in March last year, giving twitter like experience in Indian languages. The app had won India’s Atmanirbhar Bharat challenge last year, which was to encourage local app development. Like Twitter, Koo allows its user to follow other individuals, share messages, record audio and video messages.
Apart from Goyal, Koo also has other politicians on board including Minister of Electronics and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad and Karnataka’s Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa. Various Ministries also have their official handles on Koo, which include the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeIT), Central Board of Indirect Taxes (CBIT), National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT).
