Bobby Jindal became the ‘Twitter-Stopper’ for the day when he made hypocritic statements about being a migrated Indo-American. According to him, people who migrated from different countries to America should not be considered as ‘Hyphenated-Americans’ anymore, but simply Americans. His insecurity became a matter of public outrage when twitteratis took upon the Twitter to show their discontentment regarding his statements. All of a sudden, ‘#BobbyJindalissowhite’ started trending in Twitter and he became the butt of a few hilarious jokes. Interestingly, not just Indians but also Indo-Americans joined this trolling movement and expressed their disappointment. Some of the most shared tweets can be seen here.

Accusing Facebook and Twitter of defying the law of the land, the Russian government has opened legal proceedings against the social media giants for not complying to local data protection laws.

According to a report in RT.com late Monday, Roskomnadzor, the Russian censorship agency, said that Facebook and Twitter failed to comply with a law requiring all servers that store personal data to be located in the country.

“The tech giants instead handed ‘formal answers’ to the authorities’ previous inquiries. The agency also pledged to take legal action against the internet companies,” said the report.

Russian privacy laws require foreign online service providers to store users’ personal data on servers located within the country.

“Facebook and Twitter are reportedly negotiating the issue with Russian authorities, as the companies have not yet moved their servers to Russia,” added the report.

Roskomnadzor sent letters to Facebook and Twitter on December 17, giving them 30 days to provide “a legally valid response”.
