Koo is a "micro-blogging platform" developed in India that aims to let users express their thoughts in Indian languages. If this sounds a bit familiar to Twitter, it's cause it is. Koo bears an uncanny resemblance to Twitter, and it starts right from the app logo that isn't very discreet about its inspiration. For what it's worth, the name Koo itself seems to be a derivation of the call of the Koel bird that's commonplace in India.

But that's not all. The platform is identical to Twitter in pretty much every possible way. It's the very reason why I felt right at home (albeit a sloppier, shabbier one) as a Twitter user. The profile page is almost identical, all with a name, picture, a bio, and four tabs to show your Koos (Koo:Koo, Twitter:Tweet), likes, replies, and mentions. You can apply for a verified profile. You can only Koo a limited number of characters. You can attach images, videos, GIFs, polls, and links to Koos. You can Re-Koo or Re-Koo with Comment.

Koo is India's hot alternative to Twitter, and it's...Twitter?!

Looks promising. Will switch to it when Chinese investment stops and owner promises to make it a bot free platform biggest flaw of twitter imo.

Chinese investment?

There is indirect Chinese investment which was also in some other app called Vokal, investor will exit soon.
“Koo is an India registered company with Indian founders,” Radhakrishna said in a tweet on Wednesday. “Latest funds for Bombinate Technologies is led by a truly Indian investor 3one4 Capital. Shunwei (single digit shareholder) which had invested in our Vokal journey will be exiting fully.”

Why did government thank this misleading guy in the past and labelled him ethical hacker too?
“We thank the ethical hacker on engaging with us. We encourage any users who identify a vulnerability to inform us immediately…,” it said.
