NEW DELHI, Jun 28: Twitter has fueled another controversy as its website shows a distorted map of India on the career section on its website. The map that appears on the ‘Tweep Life’ section shows Jammu & Kashmir, and Ladakh detached from India.
The distorted map has been added by the social media platform under the career section on its website. The map that appears on the ‘Tweep Life’ section shows Jammu & Kashmir as a separate county and Leh as a part of China. This is not the first time that when Twitter has shown the wrong map of India. Earlier in October 2020, Twitter had labelled the Indian territory of Leh in Ladakh as part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
Sources have confirmed that the Centre will issue a strict notice to Twitter regarding this matter to remove the distorted map or actions will be taken against the microblogging platform.
