The founder of Koo, the buzzy, homegrown micro-blogging site, to which several Union ministers flocked after the government’s intense row with Twitter, said his platform is all for freedom of speech but will follow law of the land.

"We are built for freedom of speech. Our primary goal is to make sure that everybody who is in India has the right to express themselves.," Aprameya Radhakrishna, co-founder and chief executive officer of Koo, told Moneycontrol in an interview.

“While that happens of course there will be exceptions like a threat to life. Like one person inciting violence or threatening to take his own life. So being a company registered in India, we will abide by the law of the land,” he said.

Meanwhile, in an interview with CNBC TV18, he also confirmed that Chinese investor Shunwei is exiting the venture.
