New Delhi: Popular microblogging site Twitter has assured the government cooperation after the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) complained about six accounts with objectionable content that impersonated the PMO’s official account.
The government had blocked six accounts after Twitter took no action. The social networking portal has assured the PMO that it would be finding the “unlawful content”, said reliable sources.
The microblogging site said it was “now actively reviewing” the request and will be seeking more information from the ministry of communications and information technology “to locate the unlawful content and the specific unlawful tweet”, they said.
Twitter also said that it could not take action earlier “because the government entity did not intimate through proper procedure electronically to our system and hence the request was not located”, said the sources.
