Who's the first originator? Know all about it as Centre unveils tougher rules for social media
The Centre on Thursday announced new rules to curb misuse of social media platforms, amidst growing concerns around lack of transparency, accountability and rights of users related to these platforms. It mandated firms to appoint grievance officer, disclose the first originator of the mischievous information and remove, within 24 hours, content depicting nudity or morphed pictures of women.
The social media platforms upon being asked either by the court or by the government authority will be required to disclose the first originator of the mischievous tweet or a message said Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
