Micro-blogging platform Twitter is again the talk of the town as it shows a distorted map of India on the career section on its website. The map without Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir has appeared under the Tweet Life section as a new country itself.
This is not the first time that Twitter has shown the wrong map of India. In November r 2020, national security analyst Nitin A Gokhale found that Twitter had labelled the Indian territory of Leh in Ladakh as part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
According to sources, the centre has issued a strict notice to Twitter regarding this matter to remove the distorted map or actions will be taken against the microblogging platform.
The government has slammed Twitter recently for deliberate defiance and failure to comply with the country’s new IT rules, which has led to the microblogging platform losing its legal shield as an intermediary in India and becoming liable for users posting any unlawful content.
