The parliamentary committee meeting was scheduled for February 7, but was later postponed to February 11 to allow the Twitter CEO and senior officials more time to make themselves available.

Twitter has faced increasing scrutiny globally over its conduct and India's parliamentary hearing is the fourth one in the world after similar ones in US, Singapore and the European Union.
