When Twitter ‘murdered’ Sunanda Pushkar

The death of Sunanda Pushkar, just a few days after her Twitter outburst, was indeed a shock  to everyone. Before her death, there were a considerable amount of jokes on her relationship with Shashi Tharoor due to the Mehr Tarar angle, as is the case with celebrities whose personal lives are always topics of page-3 reports.

However, some people decided to blame Twitter for her death, arguing that such jokes, which Twitter users crack on anyone and everyone, pushed Sunanda into depression and then suicide:

Some may have deleted their tweets or used some other medium, but user reactions indicate what they did say:

While some said it explicitly, some chose to drop hints:

Barkha Dutt

Harinder Baweja, journalist at Hindustan Times

And of course MSM picked it from there:

And conducting polls online

We hope Twitter is exonerated soon.

And hope these people realize that knowingly or unknowingly, they were shielding the real culprit by blaming Twitter for what now is a clear case of murder.
