Koo’s Silence: The End of an Era



The bitter taste of failure! Koo, the wannabe Twitter-killer that attempted to ride the wave of Indian government-sponsored censorship, has finally gone bankrupt.

After bleeding millions in futile attempts to win over users in India, the last straw was a failed acquisition attempt by Dailyhunt. How the mighty have fallen!

Behind the façade of being an “Indian Twitter” alternative, Koo was simply a puppet for the ruling government’s digital agenda. Their insidious modus operandi: to silence dissident voices, prop up nationalism, and keep dissenting thought at bay.

Oh, but the sweet promises made to users! They thought Koo was going to be a utopian haven for freedom of speech. Hah! It turned out to be just another Potemkin village, a propaganda echo chamber to further entrench the status quo.

And the international community ate it up like so many clueless sheep, conveniently ignoring Koo’s underhand tactics to curry favor with India’s fascist regime.

What happened to that vaunted “$60 million” in funding, oh so glibly paraded about? Turns out it was mere window dressing to hoodwink investors into bankrolling their catastrophic failure. And to think Koo even claimed to be taking on the might of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter – and got shellacked! Who needs credibility when you’ve got desperation?

You know, if one were to venture a guess, perhaps this is how the Indian tech “ecosystem” looks back on the ignominious saga of Koo: a failed, crass attempt at censoring the world, foiled by the very platform it was born to supplant.
