New Delhi: Parliamentary committee members raised the matter of Twitter temporarily locking Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s account in 2020, according to sources.
Some members of the BJP, in an interaction with the Twitter representatives, raked up the issue of micro-blogging site locking Shah’s account for a brief spell in 2020, sources was quoted by India Today.
BJP members even questioned Twitter’s fact-checking mechanism and wondered how the country’s home minister’s account was locked.
Twitter had then said that Amit Shah’s account was locked temporarily due to an “inadvertent error” and immediately the decision was reversed.
Twitter had also removed Amit Shah’s display picture responding to a “report from the copyright holder”.
