Grievance Redressal Officer will appoint, twitter loose attitude

The microblogging website Twitter, which is facing criticism all over the world for its biased and arbitrary attitude, has succumbed to the law of India. Twitter has told the Delhi High Court that the company is appointing a grievance redressal officer in compliance with Indian laws. In an affidavit filed in response to the notice issued by the High Court, Twitter said that the process of permanent appointment of an Indian national as Grievance Redressal Officer is in the final stages. Apart from this, an interim officer has been appointed. Significantly, a petition was filed in the High Court against Twitter for not following the new IT rules. Twitter replied that as per IT rules only the victim can file a complaint, but in the present case the petitioner is not the victim. So he cannot claim against Twitter. The notification of the new IT rules was issued on February 25. And other Internet media companies, including Twitter, were to implement the new rules by May 25, but Twitter was constantly refusing to do so.
