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!

U.S. President Donald Trump Criticize Social Media Companies For Spreading Foreign Propaganda

In July, during a House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearing, executives from Facebook, Google and Twitter testified they did not remove content based on political reasons.

Trump: It Is 'Dangerous' for Twitter, Facebook to Ban Accounts (Wikimedia Commons)

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that it is “very dangerous” for social media companies like Twitter and Facebook to silence voices on their services.

Trump’s comments in an interview with Reuters come as the social media industry faces mounting scrutiny from Congress to police foreign propaganda.

Trump has made his Twitter account — with more than 53 million followers — an integral and controversial part of his presidency, using it to promote his agenda, announce policy and attack critics.

Trump previously criticized the social media industry on Aug. 18, claiming without evidence in a series of tweets that unnamed companies were “totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices.” In the same post, Trump said “too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad.”

Those tweets followed actions taken by Apple Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s YouTube and Facebook to remove some content posted by Infowars, a website run by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Jones’ own Twitter account was temporarily suspended on Aug. 15.

“I won’t mention names but when they take certain people off of Twitter or Facebook and they’re making that decision, that is really a dangerous thing because that could be you tomorrow,” Trump said.

Trump appeared on a show produced by Infowars, hosted by Jones, in December 2015 while campaigning for the White House. In removing Jones’ content, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook each pointed to specific user agreement violations. For example, Facebook removed several pages associated with Infowars after determining they violated policies concerning hate speech and bullying.

Twitter and Facebook declined to comment on Trump’s statement. Apple and Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
