New Delhi, October 22

The Union Government has conveyed its disappointment to the chief executive officer (CEO) of social media giant Twitter for incorrect location settings. Raising questions about its credibility and neutrality for showing Leh as part of China, officials said Twitter must respect India’s integrity and sovereignty.

It’s unacceptable

The social media giant has been reportedly told that “this is unacceptable and Twitter must explain it. They should also ensure that it never happens again”.

“This is unacceptable and Twitter must explain it. They should also ensure that it never happens again. India is one of the countries with the maximum number of Twitter users,” said an official while referring to a letter to this effect sent to Twitter CEO James Dorsey by Union Electronics and IT Secretary Ajay Sawhney.

A Twitter spokesperson said the company remains committed to working with the government and that it respects the sensitivities involved. Twitter has acknowledged the letter from the government, the spokesperson added. — TNS
