New Delhi: The social networking site Twitter has asked the central government to give it time to comply with new IT laws.
Since last month, a new technology law regulating social media has come into force. Accordingly, social networking sites, including Twitter and Facebook, should report information about those who share news against India’s sovereignty and security.
A grievance redressal officer should be appointed to inquire into the complaints of the users. Controversial comments and pornography should be removed within 24 hours.
The federal government had warned Twitter that it would face “severe consequences” if it did not enforce the laws.
Submissive, Twitter has applied to the federal government for time to build the framework for implementing the new legal plans.
