LOL! When media thought one of Rahul Gandhi’s real tweets was from a hacker

Rahul Gandhi, whose Twitter account got hacked yesterday and resulted in a wide variety of abusive and amusing tweets emanating from his handle, was in for another surprise after one of his real tweets was mistaken to be a hacked one by some media houses.

Hours after the hacked tweets of Rahul Gandhi were deleted and normalcy seemed to return (changed name and bio of the Twitter account restored to the original one late last night itself), the following tweet was posted from the Congress Vice President’s account today morning:

Metaphorically speaking, from all the swamp and mud of the obscene tweets, a beautiful lotus had emerged.

Soon it bloomed and last we checked about 7 hours later, it had received over 2550 retweets and 4085 favorites and was even retweeted by some Congress handles, thus it was the real deal.

But looks like the ever cynical media thought that Rahul Gandhi wasn’t capable of such a magnanimous gesture of embracing all his haters and showering them love. They proceeded to declare his magnanimously profound tweet as another hacked one.

Here are some of the media houses who thought it was another tweet by the hacker:

So we have four prominent media houses or 400 lit fests right there, who think Rahul Gandhi is not capable of coming up with that beautiful prose and benevolent gesture. Mahatma Gandhi used to embrace his haters, why is Rahul Gandhi not capable of doing that? He is a Gandhi too, isn’t he?

Rahul even called his haters beautiful, who apparently can’t see their beauty yet. So we ask the media houses who thought this was a hacked tweet, did they think that the hacker was calling all Congress supporters beautiful but full of hatred? Congress party will not like it!

If Congress needs to under cyber security better, Media needs to know the character of all of celebrity Tweeters better after this incident. They shouldn’t go by stereotypes that makes Rahul Gandhi a simpleton who can’t make profound statements. Someday Arvind Kejriwal’s account might get hacked and they will think everything is alright.

Also, what were they thinking when they thought that the hacker, who had been posting abusive messages, had suddenly became philosophical? Did they think the hacker to be a split personality who switches between Raghu Ram from Roadies to Alok Nath in a movie doing kanyadaan?

Nonetheless, even after over 7 hours, the media houses haven’t realized their mistake and have kept their tweets intact. Though if you find any of the above tweets deleted or unavailable, do let us know in the comment box or on our Twitter or Facebook pages. One of our staff has all the screenshots 😉
