Another case can now be filed on the social media platform Twitter, surrounded by controversies over adherence to the toolkit and social media guidelines. The National Child Rights Protection Commission (NCPCR) had sought a Twitter response in connection with some links related to child sexual abuse, which Twitter denied. After this, the commission has asked the Delhi Police to register a case against Twitter.
Some links to child sexual abuse found on Twitter
In its complaint sent to the Delhi Police, the Commission has said that some links to child sexual abuse have been found on Twitter. Apart from this, some links created on the dark web have also appeared on Twitter. When the Commission sought a response from Twitter about this, it clearly stated that Twitter India cannot reply in this matter. Whereas, the Commission’s investigation revealed that 99 per cent of Twitter India’s shares are with Twitter. After this, the Children’s Commission started the process of police complaints against Twitter.
Commission demands to delete accounts
The Commission has also informed the IT Ministry about this. The Commission has asked the Ministry to remove those accounts from Twitter, which can be used by children right now. The Commission said that until Twitter gets an answer or assurance that the problem of these links related to child sexual abuse will be resolved or it will not cause any harm to the children, then these accounts should be removed.
Commission’s accusation – Twitter gave us false information
The Commission said – Twitter India has two directors, Twitter America’s Salaried Employee. We came to know that Twitter gave us false information during the investigation. Violating child rights protection laws. After this we have asked Delhi Police to register an FIR and inform the commission.
