Punjabi singer Jazzy B’s Twitter has been blocked in India.

Other than Jazzy B three other accounts are also blocked by Twitter India. These accounts are ‘geo-restricted' which means they can be still be accessed from IP addresses outside the country - after a legal demand from the government on Sunday.
