Hashtags such as #banTwitter and #Twitterban are currently trending on the microblogging website. But what’s the reason? Well, it is because the official Twitter website showed India’s map without the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The Twitter map showed the two regions out of the Indian map.

Soon after the inaccurate Indian map went viral, Twitter removed it from its website that showed Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as a separate country. To recall, Twitter previously showed Leh as a part of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as a part of China.
After the wrong Indian map was spotted on the official website, users started tweeting with hashtag #BanTwitter. The ban twitter hashtag current has around 15,000 plus tweets.
Twitter users are expressing their anger on the platform for the incorrect map. The microblogging site is getting trolled big time on its own platform. Several angry users are tweeting against Twitter and asking everyone to join the made in India Koo microblogging site.
