Congress IT cell head’s Twitter meltdown, Congress-friendly ‘journalists’ come in the line of fire

Seems like Divya Spandana is done with taking the criticism on behalf of Congress

Congress IT cell head Divya Spandana had a major meltdown on Twitter after people, including Congress-friendly journalists, pointed out that her tweet comparing PM Modi to ‘bird pooping’ was not in good taste. She took to Twitter to let the world know that she, as a former member of parliament and Congress party’s social media and digital communication in-charge, does not ‘give two hoots’ about the views of the voters.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. When Hurricane Birdie hit Twitter, no one, including Congress-friendly journalists could escape the ire.

First, she accused The Wire‘s Rohini Singh, who called out Divya’s tweet as being distasteful, of having a ‘dirty mind’.

Then she corrected herself and accused Singh of having a ‘convoluted, manipulative, dirty mind’.

Ouch.

Next to come in the line of fire was Shekhar Coup.. err. Shekhar Gupta of ThePrint. Gupta had wondered aloud that first Divya had ‘ruined further the taste of our already rotten political discourse’ after which Divya went on to insult our collective intelligence.

He then wondered if this is the decency Rahul meant when he had hugged PM Modi?

Triggered, Divya Spandana pointed out that Gupta talking of standards is more like the kettle calling the pot black.

The next casualty of the fury was NDTV‘s Nidhi Razdan.

At first Congress-friendly ‘journalist’, Pallavi Ghosh had ‘clarified’ from her ‘sources’ that Divya’s tweet was not in reference to PM Modi.

Right after the ‘clarification’ from Ghosh, Nidhi tweeted how Congress sources say that the party does not approve of the language used by Divya.

Shocked at Divya’s brazenness, Nidhi again tweeted how Divya, who holds an official position in the Congress, cannot absolve herself of the responsibility of telling the nation what exactly she meant by her tweet.

Divya hit out on Nidhi and refused to offer any further explanation.

Nidhi, as a responsible citizen of India who votes, was shocked at being referred to as a monkey.

Not taking the slow comprehension skills of Nidhi lying down, Divya suggested Nidhi visits Srinagar to feel better. One wonders why Divya suggested that Nidhi visits Srinagar specifically.

To that, Nidhi retorted at how she wishes she could do that, but she has an actual job to do, because of which she couldn’t.

A friendly reminder: A few weeks back Twitter was abuzz with speculation of promotion/punishment of Divya Spandana after she changed her bio on the Twitter profile, removing her designation as Congress IT cell head. This infighting between ‘journalists’ who are overtly sympathetic towards Rahul Gandhi, and Divya Spandana who is considered to be a close aide of Rahul Gandhi, is only furthering speculation that all might not be well within Congress and this might be an indirect message to Divya that her time in the party is up.

Not taking the job-jibe lying down, Divya responded in kind.

So, if Nidhi, who has a job with NDTV, is lucky to have a job, as ‘few’ people have one, one wonders whether Divya is a lucky one or the unlucky one?
