Twitter appointed Chief Compliance Officer, said- Follow the guidelines…


New Delhi. Micro-blogging platform Twitter has appointed Interim Chief Compliance Officer regarding the Intermediary Guidelines issued by the Ministry of Information Technology. The company has said that the details will be shared with the IT ministry soon. A Twitter spokesperson said that every effort is being made to follow the new guidelines. The IT Ministry is being informed about the progress at every step.

Ministry has sought this information from social media platforms
Significantly, according to the IT Ministry, major social media platforms provide services in India through their parent company or any other subsidiary. Some of these fall under the definition of Important Social Media Intermediaries (SSMIs) under the IT Act and new rules. In such a situation, to ensure compliance with these rules, social media platforms should provide the physical address of the platform in India along with details of three key personnel in addition to details such as app name, website and services. It has been said in the letter that if you are not considered SSMI, then the reason for this, including the number of users registered on each service, should be given.

If you do not follow the rules, you will have to lose the status of an intermediary unit.
Failure to comply with the rules may result in social media companies losing their intermediary entity status. In other words, in case of non-compliance, criminal action can be taken against them. According to the new rules, if objections are raised by the authorities about any material and they are asked to remove it, then they will have to take action within 36 hours.
