Twitter India head in trouble too

In another matter, Twitter India chief Manish Maheshwari has been named in another First Information Report filed in Uttar Pradesh over an incorrect map of India on the official website. The inaccurate map on the Twitter website showed Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh as a separate country.

Twitter has been in the news for all the wrong reasons of late, especially in the last one month. It all began with the platform delaying in complying with new IT rules. Eventually, the microblogging site lost legal protection in the country.

In another incident, Twitter blocked Ravi Shankar Prasad from accessing his official verified Twitter account, which was later restored.

Overall, all is not very well for Twitter in India and we will need to see how the company fights these legal actions taken against the platform.
