SC Asks Twitter, Centre For Mechanism To Counter Fake News

The Supreme Court on February 12 asked the Centre and micro-blogging platform Twitter for a regulatory mechanism to tackle fake news and provocative contents. Giving the direction on BJP leader Vinit Goenka's petition, the court has clubbed the matter with other pleas demanding the like mechanism. The BJP leader, in his petition, had stated that social media is used by political parties to "tarnish the image of opponents" and for spreading "anti-India" messages.
