The Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology (IT) has summoned Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and other officials to appear before it on 25 February, said panel head Anurag Thakur. Twitter India’s representatives, including Director of Policy Mahima Kaul, were summoned by the panel on Monday, 11 February, over citizen’s concern on Twitter.
Twitter team, including Twitter India representatives, arrived at the Parliament on Monday to appear before Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology. The micro-blogging social media platform had refused to appear citing ‘short notice’ of the hearing, following which the Committee had called Twitter via a letter on 1 February.
