Twitter has put out a blog post in which the company says that employees in India are not the ones making enforcement decisions with regards to its policies. The social media giant also refuted the claims that it was biased against accounts with a certain political ideology.
Twitter was summoned by Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology to examine the issues regarding citizen’s rights on “social or online news media platforms” on February 11.
Twitter was accused of being biased against right-wing accounts, including those who support BJP in India, with claims that Twitter inclines towards left-wing accounts, which are not suspended even for hate-speech and abusive posts.
The detailed blog post refuting against the allegations is written by Colin Crowell, who is the head of Global Public Policy and philanthropy at the social network, expressing that the product or the company’s policies have not been “developed nor evolved on the basis of political ideology.”
