Few social media giants are said to have already agreed to comply with the rules, while Twitter remained on the other side in the opposition. According to the latest reports, a spokesperson from Twitter now stated that Twitter strives to comply with applicable laws in India.

On Saturday i.e. May 29, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy while talking about Twitter, accused the platform of maintaining the double standards in India. He said that Twitter and other foreign companies should not teach the largest democratic country about fundamental rights and human rights. He had informed ANI, “Twitter has been following the Rule of Land in the other countries but is maintaining double standards for India. Twitter is trying to teach India about fundamental rights. It does not need to teach us.”

According to the latest tweet post by ANI, Twitter’s spokesperson said, “Twitter strives to comply with applicable laws in India. We continue to be strictly guided by principles of transparency, a commitment to empowering every voice on the service, and protecting freedom of expression and privacy under the Indian law.”

For the unversed, on Monday i.e May 31, the Delhi High Court said that Twitter India has to comply with the new IT regulations and code of ethics. During the hearing, the court apparently told Twitter that ‘they have to follow the rules’. The micro-blogging site on the other side reportedly claimed before the court that it has complied with the rules and appointed a resident grievance officer and the central government disputed these claims.
