The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information & Technology instructed social media platform Twitter to appear before them in the Parliament Complex on June 18.

Micro-blogging giant Twitter didn’t agree with the new IT rules. It said that the new rules violate freedom of speech and deliberately target journalists and activists. The Parliamentary Standing Committee has summoned twitter officials to discuss and deliberate on how the blogging giant is working towards safeguarding citizens’ rights and prevention of misuse of social/online news media platforms including special emphasis on women security in digital space.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology gave notice to Twitter for compliance with new IT rules. But, twitter repeatedly failed to provide adequate clarifications to the Government. Now, Twitter has convinced that it is making every effort to comply with the new Guidelines. 

The parliamentary standing committee will try to hear the reasons which prevented the social media platform from compliance with India’s new IT rules. Twitter had raised objections against the new rules. 

In January, the Parliamentary Committee on Information & Technology summoned twitter officials with regards to privacy laws and personal data protection.
