New Delhi:

Creating a flutter among its own users, popular social media platform Twitter today made a faux pas in its location-tagging service that showed Jammu as part of Pakistan and J&K as being in China.

When contacted, a Twitter spokesperson did not give any immediate comment. However, sources in the company said the problem has been identified and it would be resolved soon.

While posting a new tweet, Twitter gives an option to the user to tag his or her location, wherein the microblogging site was today found to be showing Jammu as being part of Pakistan. Besides, a user seeking to tag Jammu and Kashmir as a location was being shown the option of this place being in ‘People’s Republic of China’.

A number of Twitter users criticised Twitter for the goof-up, with some terming it being biased against India.
