At the point when individuals from the leading party in India shared tweets about an affirmed “toolkit” that the opposition party used to wreck the PM’s work to control COVID, Twitter marked those tweets as “manipulated media”. Following this, the Delhi Police conveyed a notification to Twitter India’s office to clarify why the tweets were marked something similar. At the point when they didn’t get any reaction from the online media giant, the Police attacked the Twitter India office in Delhi and Gurgaon on Monday to find the solutions.

Presently, in the event that you are uninformed of what I am discussing, allowed me to clarify. BJP representative Sambit Patra supposedly shared a tweet as of late (which is currently erased) expressing that the opposition party, i.e., Congress is utilizing some sort of “toolkit” to hamper the endeavors to check the Coronavirus in the country. The tweet was marked as “controlled media” by Twitter as it supposedly contained bogus data. It was subsequently affirmed by the Indian certainty checking news association Alt News that it contained adulterated data.

Twitter India Offices Raided by Delhi Police

Thus, on Monday, three groups from the Special Cell of Delhi Police, which is constrained by the Central government, visited Twitter India workplaces in Delhi and Gurgaon. The PRO of the Delhi Police Chinmoy Biswal told the media that the activity was “a piece of a normal interaction.”

“This was necessitated as we wanted to ascertain who is the right person to serve a notice, as replies by Twitter India MD have been very ambiguous,” Biswal added. Another senior officer from the Police team said that they sent a notice to Twitter about the “toolkit” issue but did not receive an “appropriate response.”

“We want to know what information Twitter has about the toolkit and why they chose to give the ‘manipulated media’ label. Our team visited their Gurgaon office on Golf Course Road and Delhi office in Mehrauli to hand over the notice,” the officer said.

In any case, lamentably for them, Twitter India representatives are apparently right now working distantly and nobody was available at the Delhi office. The Police arrived at the area and discovered it bolted. Then again, the Police group that went to the Gurgaon part of Twitter India couldn’t find the workplace. The authorities supposedly left the premises by 8:15 on Monday evening.
