Twitter Summoned Before Indian Parliamentary Panel


Twitter was summoned on Tuesday before an Indian Parliament panel to present its views on “safeguarding citizens’ rights on social/online news media platforms.”

The notice was tweeted by Anurag Thakur who heads the Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology and is a member of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Local news outlets reported the notice was issued after a volunteer group supposedly wrote to the committee, alleging that Twitter was biased against right-wing and pro-BJP accounts.

Twitter was asked to appear before the committee on Feb. 11 at 3 p.m. local time along with representatives from India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
