Microblogging platform Twitter has once again courted controversy after it was pointed out that its website shows a distorted map of India.

The map, which appears on the career section of the micro-blogging platform, shows Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh detached from the country.

This is not the first time that Twitter has shown a distorted map of India.

The Centre had last year written to Twitter CEO, conveying its strong disapproval over the misrepresentation of the map of Indiaafter Twitter showed the geo-location of Leh in Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Republic of China.

In a warning, the government said any attempt by Twitter to disrespect India’s “sovereignty and integrity is totally unacceptable”.
