Twitter has lost its legal protection in India from prosecution over users' posts because of its failure to comply with new digital rules, government sources said today as a case was filed in Uttar Pradesh against the social media giant over tweets that the police say attempted to incite communal trouble. Twitter has not yet complied with all the provisions of the rules that came into force on May 25, sources in the Ministry of Electronics and IT said. "Due to their non-compliance their protection as an intermediary is gone. Twitter can face liability for violating any Indian law just as any publisher is," the sources said. Twitter has refused to comment on it.
