On Thursday, Twitter informed the Delhi high court that it will be trying to appoint a new grievance redressal officer in 8 weeks.
To comply with India’s new IT rules, Twitter will soon designate two other executives until they appoint the officer. They have also appointed an interim chief compliance officer.
For all three positions, Twitter has posted job openings and Twitter also said that it is setting up a liaison office in India.
The other day High court asked Twitter to make filing stating that the interim executives of the company will take full responsibility for their role.
The court filing came in a case against Twitter which was done by a user, wanting to complain about some defamatory tweets on the platform. User mentioned that the company wasn’t complying with the IT rules.
These rules have come into effect since May end. As of now Twitter needs to appoint new executives over which high court has expressed displeasure previously. Twitter’s delay in appointing the grievance redressal officer is not being appreciated.
