New Delhi: Creating a flutter among its own users, popular social media platform Twitter today made a faux pas in its location-tagging service that showed Jammu as part of Pakistan and J&K as being in China.

While posting a new tweet, Twitter gives an option to the user to tag his or her location, wherein the micro-blogging site was today found to be showing Jammu as being part of Pakistan. Besides, a user seeking to tag Jammu and Kashmir as a location was being shown the option of this place being in 'People's Republic of China'.

External Affairs Ministry today said the goof-up by Twitter in its location-tagging service that showed Jammu as part of Pakistan and J&K as being in China will be taken up with the micro-blogging site. 

"I am sure this will be taken up," Spokesperson in the MEA Vikas Swarup told reporters. 

When contacted, a Twitter spokesperson did not give any immediate comment. However, sources in the company said the problem has been identified and it would be resolved soon. 

A number of Twitter users criticised Twitter for the goof-up, with some terming it being biased against India.
