On Tuesday Union Minister Piyush Goyal Tweets about the Indian Made Twitter alternative. In which he encouraged people to join the Koo App, the new development of Koo App comes in the mindset of the tussle going on between Twitter and the government over the content censorship during the ongoing Farmers Protest. The Koo App has won the government Aatmanirbhar Bharat App challenge last year. Union Minister Piyush Goyal has a hold of Commerce and Industry, Railways, Consumer Affairs, and Food and Public Distribution.
