Twitter appointed Vinay Prakash as the Resident Grievance Officer and provided an email contact ID.
“In compliance with Rule 4(1)(d) of the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021, we have published our inaugural report on July 11, 2021 for the reporting period from May 26, 2021 through to June 25, 2021,” the social media giant also said in its transparency centre page.
Twitter had told an Indian court it would appoint an acting grievances officer to comply with the new rules. He also said he planned to have a final appointment for the post in eight weeks. The IT rules, which came into effect at the end of May, aim to regulate content on social networks and encourage companies to react more quickly to legal requests to remove posts and share information about the authors of the messages. But the regulatory review of Twitter, along with others such as WhatsApp and Amazon, has intensified friction between U.S. tech companies and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government and disrupted the business environment in a key growth market.
