Social media platform landed itself in controversy after users shared screenshots of Twitter's blunder, which was first pointed out by National Security Analyst Nitin A Gokhale.

A Twitter spokesperson called it a technical issue, one which they said has been swiftly resolved.

Nitin was doing a live broadcast on Twitter from the war memorial in Ladakh when he spotted that the social media network had tagged it as part of the People’s Republic of China.

He took to Twitter to post: "Tweeple please put Hall of Fame Leh as your location for live broadcast and see what's happening. It shows the location as Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Republic of China. I tested it again. Outrageous."

The analyst also shared screengrabs of the video, stating: "Nitin A Gokhale was live. Jammu and Kashmir, People's Republic of China."

Twitter's blunder trigger a wave of angry outbursts on social media, with most requesting the government to take strict action against the social media platform and some seeking total ban on it in India.
