#TwitterBan trends: Twitterati says ‘Enough is Enough’ for showing distorted map of India

New Delhi: Microblogging site Twitter on Monday removed the distorted map of India, which depicted Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as not part of the country after facing severe backlash.

The map, which appeared on the Twitter website’s Career page under the heading ‘Tweep Life’ section was removed from the webpage late today. The incorrect map attracted heavy criticism from netizens and demands of action against the microblogging site.

Here is how Twitterati is expressing their anger:

Previously, in October 2020, Twitter had labelled the Indian territory of Leh in Ladakh as part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

The government of India had then issued a warning to CEO Jack Dorsey over the misrepresentation of the Indian map. Giving notice to Twitter, Secretary IT had said that such attempts not only bring disrepute to Twitter but also raise questions about its neutrality and fairness as an intermediary.
