Facebook, Twitter, to be blocked in India from Tomorrow!!! Trending in Twitter
Social media platforms Facebook, Twitter may face a ban in India if they do not comply with the new Intermediary Guidelines. The deadline to accept the guidelines set by the government will end on May 26 but so far none of the platforms including WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter has complied with the new regulations yet.
Except Koo, the Indian version of Twitter, none of the social media giants have complied with the new guidelines ahead of the May 26 deadline. If they fail to comply with the new rules, the social media giants may lose their status and protections as intermediaries and criminal action can be taken against them as per the laws of India.
Information Technology (Guidelines for intermediaries and digital media ethics code) Rules, 2021 were notified by the ministry on February 25 for social media intermediaries such as Twitter and Facebook, and over-the-top (OTT) platforms such as Netflix, Hotstar and Amazon.
Indian users have been filing a series of complaints against companies, including Twitter and Facebook, for arbitrarily blocking personal accounts and failing to take action against insults and religious insults.
All of these issues have become a national trend on Twitter. Many have been posting their views calling for a ban on Twitter and praising the Delhi Police. Many have argued that social media, without being a public entity, is unfair to act in favor of a few parties and that interim mechanisms and digital media protocol rules should ban social media from operating under 2021.
Yet if some people block social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, many things, including the exchange of information, will be delayed in reaching people. Therefore, it is suggested that the rules be tightened without restraint. Thus, hashtags like Ban Twitter in India, Well done Delhi Police, Manipulated Media, Twitter and Facebook are trending.
