That Awkward Moment When Someone Who Can’t Handle A Twitter Account Aims To Handle A Country
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account was hacked on Wednesday, with about a dozen offensive tweets being posted within a few minutes.
The first six tweets were deleted shortly after being posted around 8.45pm. More offensive tweets, however, kept showing up on the Twitter account – @OfficeOfRG — every few minutes and were being deleted immediately after being posted.
The hackers also removed Gandhi’s profile picture and the account description was altered to read “This is the official account of the Office of Retard Gandhi”.
Condemning the incident, Congress spokesperson Randeep S Surjewala tweeted: “Such lowly tactics will never drown the sane voice of reason nor deter Sh. Rahul Gandhi from raising people’s issues.”
“Such unscrupulous,unethical roguish conduct of venal trolls 2hack OfficeOfRG reflects disturbing insecurities of prevalent fascist culture (SIC),” he added. The handle Office of Rahul Gandhi is managed by his close aides and has over 1.2 million followers
The official twitter handle of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was hacked with a series of obscene tweets posted on the timeline.
The offensive tweets were related to the demonetisation and Mr. Gandhi’s family.
However, within minutes, the account was restored and all offensive tweets were deleted from its timeline but immediately the account was again hacked with new tweets appearing on the timeline.
The Congress spokesman Randeep Surjewala confirmed by tweeting that “@OfficeOfRG hacked. Such lowly tactics will never drown the sane voice of reason nor deter Sh Rahul Gandhi from raisning people’s issues.”
But credit must be given to Rahul’s IT team which quickly resolved the issue. Otherwise this could have been a much bigger mess.
The guns are already out with Randeep Surjewala issuing a warning to the hackers. Who ever the Hacker is It must be an easy target to hack Rahul Gandhi. 😛
