Lina Khan, 32, is the new chairwoman of US Federal Trade Commission. It was one single scholarly article @linamkhan wrote in 2017 - Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox - that made her a celebrity. An NYT profile worth reading. https://t.co/CVGAJa5dXB

At 32, @linamkhan Lina Khan will become the youngest commissioner ever confirmed to the FTC. Her confirmation also signals a bipartisan desire to impose more regulations on Big Tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet and Apple https://t.co/uGpRYbptg8

I’m so grateful to the Senate for my confirmation. Congress created the FTC to safeguard fair competition and protect consumers, workers, and honest businesses from unfair & deceptive practices. I look forward to upholding this mission with vigor and serving the American public.

Delhi riots: India court grants bail to activists. "...the line between the constitutionally guaranteed right to protest and terrorist activity seems to be getting somewhat blurred. If this mindset gains traction, it would be a sad day for democracy." https://t.co/f3dP6JkpsX

EXCLUSIVE The #COVID19 Delta variant is now all over the world. This is the story of how it all began in a rural Indian district in Feb - and how the Modi govt missed an early alarm, leading to the variant's spread. @zebatweets & I report. A thread: https://t.co/jgiv0SbP0S

In February, a Reuters investigation showed Amazon gave preferential treatment to a small group of sellers on its Indian platform. The antitrust body will examine the Reuters report and could use it as part of its investigation, one source said. https://t.co/SFJzBpBHXn

The CCI is speeding up all cases involving big technology firms, including by deploying additional officers for some cases and working to more stringent internal deadlines, said two people, who are familiar with the watchdog's thinking.

Last week, an Indian court allowed Amazon, Flipkart probe to continue. The firms are likely to appeal, but the CCI plans to demand information from them related to the allegations "as quickly as possible". This will include company documents

As the @CCI_India argued to restart the probe, it told the Karnataka court in March a Reuters special report corroborated evidence it had received against Amazon. The story showed Amazon has for years given preferential treatment to a few sellers https://t.co/uA3m3TWWdw
