Twitter execs grilled over blocking of Amit Shah's account

Jan 22, 2021 07:36 IST

A Parliamentary panel on Thursday grilled executives from Facebook and Twitter over the blocking of home minister Amit Shah's Twitter account in November. The Twitter officials reportedly explained that they had to block the account temporarily as there was a copyright issue regarding a picture posted. The agenda of the meeting included safeguarding citizens' rights, preventing misuse of social news media platforms and women security in the digital space. Some panel members questioned how social media platforms could remove content when there is no law against it in India.
