Digvijay Singh locks his Twitter account, whines over lack of retweets

However, a person like Digvijay Singh, who is seen quite frequently on the social media platform, making such a mistake and taking it a step further to blame 'policy intervention' or hacking for it has left Twitter users amused.

Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh was called out on social media today after he started complaining that his Tweets are not being RTed due to ‘Twitter policy intervention’ or hacking.

Always quite vocal on Twitter and otherwise, Digvijay Singh has been targetting the central government and questioning the alleged intelligence failure that had resulted in the IED attack in CRPF jawans recently.

A while later, Digvijay complained that his tweets are not showing the Retweet option and he cannot even see two previous tweets where he had questioned the government over intelligence failure. Singh then theorised that this might be a case of Twitter policy intervention or hacking.

Soon after Digvijay had tweeted, abusive troll Swati Chaturvedi jumped in to echo his words. She also claimed that she cannot retweet Singh’s tweets either.

Actually, at that time, Digvijay Singh’s Twitter account was under ‘locked’ status. When a Twitter account is under ‘locked status, a person’s tweets cannot be retweeted, no person can follow the user without his/her approval and non-followers cannot see the tweets from that account.

Digvijay Singh’s gaffe was pointed out by a Twitter user.

Digvijay perhaps realised his mistake and changed the features in his Twitter account. As of now, his Twitter profile doesn’t show a ‘locked’ status. his tweets over the Kashmir issue are also visible and have several retweets. His tweet complaining of hacking has been deleted too.

However, a person like Digvijay Singh, who is seen quite frequently on the social media platform, making such a mistake and taking it a step further to blame ‘policy intervention’ or hacking for it has left Twitter users amused. Equally hilarious is the fact that troll cum journalist Swati Chaturvedi also jumped in on the whining.
