Elections 2019: Facebook and Twitter vow to take down content within 3 hours

Social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, arrived at an agreement to process any request from the EC to take down content within three hours during the 48-hour period before Ballot days.
 
The agreement was made at a meeting between the EC and Internet companies as part of a "Voluntary Code of Ethics" for the staggered Lok Sabha elections starting on April 11.
 
The code, voluntarily agreed by the participants, has been developed to ensure free, fair and ethical use of social media platforms to maintain the integrity of the electoral process and it comes into operation with immediate effect, the Election Commission said.
