According to the news of India Today , the committee wanted to discuss how the company’s officials are being protected on the interests of the people on social media. BJP parliamentary committee headed by Anurag Thakur is chairing this parliamentary committee.
The meeting of the parliamentary committee was scheduled to be held on February 7 but later it was extended for 11 February so that the CEOs and senior officials of Twitter get time to attend here.
It was clearly written in the letter sent to the tweeter that the head of the institution is to appear before the parliamentary committee. They can bring any other representative along with them too. On Saturday, a member of the panel told that Twitter has expressed its inability to send its CEO.
A few days ago members of the right-wing organization Youth for Social Media Democracy accused Twitter of bias. He said that the Twitter Vaamavanthi has given the idea to the section and is adopting biased attitude towards right-wing ideologues.
