Let the site face the Parliamentary CommitteeJack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai have been called by the House and Senate Committees in the USA to testify against the accusation of politically biased management of their businesses. Facebook has been called by many Parliamentary bodies across the world after its dirty secret regarding Cambridge Analytica was known. These social media giants are accused of manipulating public perception unfairly to effect democratic elections in the USA and in some other countries.
Now, it's the turn of Twitter India. Twitter is accused internationally of projecting and enforcing the promoter's bias on the democratic process of India. And the site does so with impunity. Many Twitter-users have complained that their voice is being suppressed by this micro-blogging site, which is fast losing its popularity in India (although Twitter India has denied this allegation in a blog released yesterday). Now, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, headed Shri Anurag Thakur, has summoned Twitter India officials to hear the views of Ministry of Electronics & IT and of Twitter to understand how the fundamental rights of citizens of India could be safeguarded on social media platforms.
Let Twitter India face the Parliamentary Committee and explain its bias against a particular ideology.
