The Parliamentary panel on Information Technology has summoned Twitter head Jack Dorsey to appear before it on the 25th of this month. The panel met the officials of the microblogging site in New Delhi yesterday on safeguarding citizens rights on social news media platforms. The committee's Chairman, BJP MP Anurag Thakur said after the meeting the Twitter head and senior officials have been summoned on the issue.
On Saturday, Twitter in a statement had cited short notice of the hearing for Dorsey not being able to attend yesterday's meeting. The panel decided to call Twitter officials against the backdrop of growing concerns about safeguarding citizens' data privacy and possibility that social media could be used to interfere in elections.
