Twitter asks for more time from govt to comply with new IT rules due to the 'pandemic situation' in India
The notice from Twitter did not mention a specific date for the micro-blogging site to comply with the rules.
Twitter appoints interim Chief Compliance Officer for India; says additional details will be shared with IT Ministry directly
A Twitter spokesperson on Tuesday said the company continues to make every effort to comply with the new guidelines.
Losing the intermediary status means Twitter will now be liable for all the content on its platform that is considered unlawful or ‘inflammatory’ in nature.
