New Delhi/IBNS:  A parliamentary panel Friday questioned Twitter on a range of issues including the privacy of user data, the possibility of breaches and allegations of irregularities levelled by a former employee named Zatko.

The social media giant's team of officials is believed to have told the Standing Committee for Information and Technology led by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor that it follows strict data safety norms.

They also informed the committee that most of its employees do not have access to user data.

"There is some access to user data at the headquarters but purely for technical purposes," the company reportedly told the panel.

Responding to questions about Zatko's allegations that the Indian government had forced Twitter to appoint one of its agents in the company, the tech giant clarified that there had been no such demand.

Sources present in the committee told ANI that members wanted to find out from the Twitter team if there was any leakage of data.

The Twitter team present is learnt to have told the members that there has been no data leak by the social media giant.
