Delhi Police responds to veiled threat issued by Twitter

Delhi Police attempts to call the bluff of Twitter that the Indian authority is after its exercise of 'transparency', 'freedom of speech' etc

After social media giant issued a veiled threat to the Indian authorities in general and Delhi in particular, saying that there are activists backing it for “transparency”, “freedom of expression” and “empowerment” of the underprivileged, Delhi Police has issued a statement that aims at calling the ‘bluff’.

The Twitter statement in a thread of four

“We have come across press reports that quote Twitter Inc. statements pertaining to the ongoing inquiry by us. Prima facie, these statements are not only mendacious but designed to impede a lawful inquiry by a private enterprise,” Delhi said in a statement.

“Twitter, being public platform, must lead in demonstrating in its functioning & should bring clarity into subject matters of public domain. Since matter has been put in public domain, it’s important to set record straight on tendentious statements made,” Delhi said.

Challenging Twitter’s proclivity to act as a parallel government since their action of deleting then US President Donald Trump’s account, signs of which had begun appearing in their dealings with India when they targeted BJP leaders’ tweets, marking them as “manipulated”, Delhi said that Twitter was “purporting to be both an investigating as well as adjudicating judicial authority. It has no legal sanction to be either. The only legal entity, so empowered by the duly laid down law, to investigate is the Police and to adjudicate is the courts.”

“Twitter declared that the toolkit was ‘Manipulated Media’, this clearly shows that it was acquainted with the facts of the case & had material information relevant to the probe. Hence, Twitter was asked to join the inquiry to provide the information it possesses,” Delhi said.

Delhi Police said today that it had registered a preliminary inquiry at the complaint filed by the representative of the Indian National Congress. “Hence, efforts by Twitter that portray it as an FIR filed at the behest of the Government of India is wholly and completely incorrect,” the department said.

The latest statements by Twitter “are devised to seek dubious sympathy when they themselves not only refuse to comply with the law of the land but also claim possession of material evidence but refuse to share it with legal authority duly recognized,” Delhi Police added.
