India’s government has provided Twitter “one final chance” to conform with new digital rules or face consequences, said a couple of news reports on Saturday.
NDTV.com reported that the government has asked Twitter to nominate India-based officers following new rules for social media companies.
“Twitter Inc. is hereby provided one final notice to immediately comply with the Rules, failing which the exemption from liability to be had under section 79 of the IT Act, 2000 shall stand withdrawn and Twitter shall be liable for consequences as per the IT Act and other penal laws of India,” the government said, according to NDTV.
Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, on June 4 held a assembly that concluded that Twitter had not complied with the rules, reported news agency ANI.
