New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who found himself caught in a cleft stick over his ‘hug’ with the tainted Lalu Prasad Yadav, on Monday clarified that it was the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief who pulled him while he took no initiative and had no intention to embrace him.

“At Nitish Kumar’s swearing-in, Lalu Yadav shook my hand, pulled and hugged me. I did not take any initiative,” the AAP supremo said at the party’s National Council meeting in New Delhi, adding, “We are against his record of corruption and we will always oppose it.”

Kejriwal’s clarification, however, has not gone down well with his detractors on Twitter with some even suggesting that a case of molestation be lodged against Lalu for hugging him against his will.

Here are some of the best tweets on Kejriwal’s remarks and the hug:

Micro-blogging site Twitter has decided to audit app developers who use data from its platform, as business and research boosting tools to make sure it gets paid for the information delivered.

Starting June 19, developers that use recent tweets from or mention a user more than 100,000 times per day, will have to submit their apps to Twitter for review.

“The goal is ensuring that our platform is safe and promoting the privacy and safety of our users, and providing a level playing field commercially,” TechCrunch quoted Yoel Roth, Head of site integrity, Twitter as saying on Tuesday.

Developers found to be violating Twitter’s policies would be booted from the platform, while those who fail to file for review will be capped at 100,000 requests per day for the user timeline and mentions application programming interfaces (APIs) of Twitter.

“We’re fundamentally different than other platforms that have APIs since almost everything that happens on our service is public,” Roth explained.

Developers who use Twitter data as business tools for customer services or social media monitoring, will have to pay and enter a commercial licencing agreement with the platform with an undisclosed custom price-range based on usage.

“Twitter refused to even specify the range those prices fall into, which won’t win it any extra trust,” the report said.

If a developer in question presents legitimate consumer-use cases, like running a third-party Twitter client or doing research, it will be granted free access to the API at the same rate they have today.
