So who really tweets from Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account?

Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s social media presence has been in the news for various reasons. From links with infamous Cambridge Analytica to using bots for Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter resurgence to multiple goof-ups, the mainstream media has stood by the Congress like a rock.

Earlier, Congress social media head Divya Spandana, who has been credited for the turnaround, had claimed that Congress President Rahul Gandhi himself manages his Twitter handle.

At 19:42, India Today’s Rahul Kanwal had asked Divya who tweets for Rahul Gandhi. Divya had asserted that “Mr Rahul Gandhi tweets for himself,” which, not surprisingly, made the audience erupt into laughter. To reconfirm what Kanwal heard, he again asked Divya whether each of the tweets that are made from the account are the ones Rahul Gandhi puts out himself. To that, Divya again answered in the affirmative.

Last evening, journalist and self-proclaimed Nehru fangirl Sagarika Ghose complimented ‘whoever was handling Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account’ (which of course was Divya Spandana, in Sagarika’s own words). She tweeted that Divya was doing a cracking job.

Not surprisingly, Divya hasn’t yet corrected or countered Ghose, who probably knows better owing to her closeness to The Family. Divya’s silence on the subject is surprising considering how vocal she is when it comes to protecting and defending Rahul Gandhi. One wonders then, whether it is really Rahul Gandhi who handles his own Twitter account, or as many suspected, it is indeed Divya and the tales about Rahul’s Twitter resurgence is but a farce.
