How I Discovered The Wrong Geotag For Leh On Twitter

NEW DELHI: For the past 24 hours, Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale has been flooded with enquiries about a video clip of him highlighting the wrong geo-tag (location) for Leh. There was some confusion about the exact date on which the video was recorded. Some thought, it is fresh one; some others knew it to be old one but were perplexed how it had popped up again. In this short chat, Gokhale explains the circumstances, timing and the subsequent action initiated by the government against Twitter and the correction that finally took place.
