The social media company Twitter has apologized in writing to the Parliamentary Committee for the mistake of showing Ladakh in China. With this, he has also promised to correct the mistake by the end of the month. Committee Chairman Meenakshi Lekhi gave this information on Wednesday. This statement of Twitter has come as an affidavit, which has been signed by Twitter Inc.’s Chief Privacy Officer Damien Karien. This apology has been sought for incorrect geotagging of the map of India.
The committee was equated with treason
Last month, the Parliament’s Joint Committee on Data Protection Bill lashed out at Twitter for showing Ladakh as part of China and termed it as treason. The committee sought clarification from the social media platform. Appearing before the committee headed by Lekhi, Twitter representatives had apologized but were told by members that the Twitter blunder fell into the category of crime that raised questions over the country’s integrity and submitted an affidavit by Twitter Inc. Should be done, not its marketing part by Twitter India.
Promise to correct by 30 November
Lekhi said that Twitter has now given a written apology as an affidavit in the case of showing Ladakh in China. He apologized for hurting Indian sentiments and promised to correct the mistake by 30 November 2020.
Let us know that the central government had sent a harsh letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey last month, which has strongly disapproved of misrepresenting the Indian map. With this, it has been emphasized that any attempt by the microblogging platform to disrespect the sovereignty and unity of the country is completely rejected. In this letter written in a strict way, IT Secretary Ajay Sahni has warned the platform that such efforts not only bring insult to Twitter but also raise questions about its fairness and correctness.
