Parliamentary Committee, headed by BJP MP Anurag Thakur, had issued a summon to Twitter via an official letter on February 1.

The parliamentary committee meeting was scheduled for February 7, but was later postponed to February 11 to allow the Twitter CEO and senior officials more time to make themselves available.

Twitter cited “short notice of the hearing” as the reason, despite being given 10 days to travel, the sources said.

The Parliamentary IT Committee received a letter on February 7 from Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s global lead for legal, policy, trust and safety, stating, “No one who engages publicly for Twitter India makes enforcement decisions with respect to our rules for content or accounts in India.”

Deputing a junior employee to represent Twitter at the Indian Parliamentary IT Committee has not gone down well with Indian lawmakers especially since they have no decision making authority, the letter from Gadde said.

This comes at a time when there are growing concerns about safeguarding citizens’ data privacy and election interference through social media platforms.
Twitter CEO, top officials decline to appear before Parliamentary Committee On IT  but  they appeared at US call.

Anurag Thakur, Chairman of Parliamentary IT Committee on Twitter CEO&senior officials of the company have refused to appear before Parliamentary Committee on IT on Feb 11: We’ve taken a serious note of Twitter’s reply. We’ll discuss that on Monday (11.02) & take further action
