    According to reports, the PIL was filed by Amit Acharya and raised the complaint that Twitter has not yet appointed a resident grievance officer.

    Senior advocate Sajjan Poovayya appearing for Twitter said, "The appointed grievance officer resigned and a new grievance officer now has to be appointed. We are in the process of appointing a new one."

    However, the bench said Twitter cannot "go on taking as long as it wants". The court asked Twitter to revert on how long it will take to appoint a new grievance officer. Twitter has sought a day's time to respond to this query.

    "Twitter has given the court the wrong impression. The least you could have done after his (interim officer's) resignation is appoint another person," the bench said.
