At a time when Twitter is engaged in a face-off with the Union government over the new Information Technology rules, the social media giant has shown the Union territories of Jammu & Kashmir, and Ladakh as territories independent from India.
Twitter has shown Jammu and Kashmir as an independent country while Ladakh has been depicted as a part of China. The error has been spotted in a map on the 'Tweep Life' section under the career portal on Twitter’s website.
The government might take strict action in this matter, senior government officials told the publication.
This is not the first time that a different map of India has been shown by Twitter. In November 2020, the microblogging website showed Leh as part of Jammu and Kashmir instead of the Union Territory of Ladakh.
