Govt tells twitter that lawfully passed orders are binding on any business entity & must be obeyed

Updated: February 11, 2021 1:53 pm

The Government has conveyed to the Twitter leadership that the manner in which Twitter officially allows fake, unverified, anonymous and automated bot accounts to be operated on its platform, raises doubts about its commitment to transparency and healthy conversation on this platform.  in a statement said that lawfully passed orders are binding on any business entity and they must be obeyed immediately. It said,  if they are executed days later, it becomes meaningless.

Secretary, Electronics and IT Ajay Prakash Sawhney expressed his deep disappointment to Twitter leadership about the manner in which Twitter has unwillingly, grudgingly and with great delay complied with the substantial parts of the order. He took this opportunity to remind Twitter that in India, its Constitution and laws are supreme and  it is expected that responsible entities not only reaffirm but remain committed to compliance to the law of land.
