Many times the government said follow the new rules
In fact, the government has asked Twitter many times to follow the new IT rules. But Twitter is constantly delaying it. The government has said that the necessary rules should be followed immediately. A notice has been given to Twitter in this regard on June 5.
Notice sent to US address
The notice includes Twitter’s US address and has been sent to Jim Baker. The notice said that the notice regarding terms and other conditions was sent on May 26, 2021. Again notices were sent on 28 May and again on 2 June. The IT Ministry has said that the ministry has not received any clarification from Twitter.
Information about Chief Grievance Officer not given
According to the notice, neither the new rules are being followed by Twitter. The ministry has said that full details of the Chief Grievance Officer have not been given by Twitter. Also, information about the nodal contact officer has not been given. The rules that have been fixed for this in India should be followed. According to the notice, the law firm mentioned by Twitter as being based in India is also not in accordance with the rules.
The rule has come into effect from 26 May
According to this, the rules of social media intermediaries have come into force from May 26 and it has been more than a week. But Twitter has refused to fulfill the provision of these rules. This notice has been sent by the coordinator Rakesh Maheshwari to the Cyber Law Group of the IT Ministry. It states that if Twitter does not comply with this final notice, it should be prepared for fines as per the rules.
shows a lack of adherence
Its refusal to comply shows Twitter’s lack of commitment and also shows that it is not taking concrete steps towards providing a secure platform to the people of India. Outside of the country of origin of Twitter, India is one of the largest democracies in the world that has been the most widely adopted Twitter platform.
Twitter responded in the High Court only last week
After confrontation with the central government, Twitter has decided to follow the new IT rules. On Monday, the social media company submitted its reply in the Delhi High Court. The company said that it has implemented the Government of India’s Eye Rule Act 2021. For this, the company had appointed an officer on 28 May itself. However, the government has rejected Twitter’s claim in court.

However, a few hours later, Twitter verified the account again and returned the blue tick. Not only this, Twitter has also removed the blue tick from the account of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
