The Indian Railways has an active presence on Twitter and passenger woes are often attended and addressed via the micro-blogging website.

But for the first time, the Indian Railways received a unique tweet addressed to its name.
India’s most famous dairy giant Amul reached out to the Indian Railways and tweeted their business proposition to the Railways, seeking permission to use their refrigerated parcel vans to transport Amul butter to different parts of India.

The Indian Railways had made the refrigerated parcel vans’ service available a few years ago with an aim to allow the transportation of presumable products such as vegetable, fruits poultry products, etc.
The service is available on selective routines, however, the refrigerated parcel vans are supposedly lying defunct.
The Indian Railways promptly responded to Amul’s business proposal in the most cheek-in-tongue manner and won hearts once again!

Twitter Gets Investigated By Ireland Over Data Collection

Both Facebook and Twitter have faced lawsuits for collecting data on links shared in private messages

 Twitter is reportedly facing an investigation by privacy regulators in Ireland over data collection in its link-shortening system, the media reported.

Privacy regulators in Ireland have launched an investigation into exactly how much data Twitter collects from t.co, its URL-shortening system, The Verge reported late on Saturday.

The investigation stems from a request made by UK professor Michael Veale under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a comprehensive European privacy law under which EU citizens have a right to request any data collected on them from a given company.

But when Veale made that request to Twitter, the company claimed it had no data from its link-shortening service. The professor was sceptical, and wrote to the relevant privacy regulator to see if Twitter was holding back some of his data.

Now, that investigation seems to be underway. The investigation, first reported by Fortune, is confirmed in a letter obtained by The Verge, sent to Veale by the office of the Irish Data Privacy Commissioner, the report said.

Initially designed as a way to save characters in the limited space of a tweet, link-shortening has also proved to be an effective tool at fighting malware and gathering rudimentary analytics.

Those analytics services can also present a significant privacy risk when used in private messages.
