The ongoing tension between Twitter and the central government may increase further. This time there may be tension over tampering with the map of India. Sources related to the government have claimed that the map of India shown by Twitter on its website has not included J&K and Ladakh. It is alleged that Twitter has shown J&K and Ladakh as two separate countries on its website.
The Tweep Life section on Twitter’s careers page has a world map. From here the company shows that there is a Twitter team all over the world. There is also India in this map, but the map of India is shown as disputed. Even before this Ladakh was not shown as a part of India. However, it was later fixed.
Now since the government has openly come against Twitter and Ravi Shankar Prasad has made it clear that Twitter has a dual attitude towards India. Therefore, this controversy can once again catch fire.
It is worth noting that even before this, once on Twitter, Ladakh had been told separately. It was rectified at the behest of the government. Ravi Shankar Prasad repeatedly says on this matter that it shows the double standard of Twitter. Recently he had said that the intention of Twitter does not seem right.
The map of India on Twitter’s career page does not include Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. That is, they are shown outside the border. People are criticizing it on social media.
So far, the statement of Twitter has not come in this matter. We have sought a response from Twitter regarding this. It is worth noting that there has been a lot of discussion about Twitter for the last few days.
Last week, the account of Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad was locked by the company for an hour due to copyright infringement. Now the news came that the Grievance Officer who was hired by the company under the Indian IT Rules, has resigned from the company. The reason why Dharmendra Chatur has resigned is not clear.
