Making every effort to comply: Twitter

New Delhi, June 8

The site said it has appointed nodal and a resident grievance officer on contract and is “in the advanced stages of finalizing” a Chief Compliance Officer. “We understand the importance of these regulations and have endeavored in good faith to comply with the guidelines, including with respect to hiring personnel in India.
