From now on, Twitter will also face criminal cases and other actions on users' objectionable posts.

As part of this, the second case on Twitter in the country was registered in Hyderabad. This case was registered for circulating a fake video. Cyberabad police have registered a case and issued notices to Twitter officials. The notice states that Twitter will be held responsible for the inappropriate comments coming in on the fake video.
