Twitter shows Leh as part of China in live broadcast

On 18th October, it was reported that Twitter was marking Leh as part of the People’s Republic of China. It was reported by Nitin A Gokhale, national security analyst when he was doing a Live session from the region. He marked his location as “Hall of Fame Leh”, but Twitter showed it as “Nitin A Gokhale was live. Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Republic of China.”

While reporting it on Twitter, he said he had tested multiple times, but it kept showing the location as the People’s Republic of China. The location remained the same after he entered Kushak Bakula Airport as his location. Another user (@rohitpandita000) went live on Nitin’s request, and the result was the same.

When OpIndia tried to make search queries, it found that the default weather app on Xiaomi phones did not provide results for districts including Itanagar, Pasighat and Longding.
