Change in Twitter bio of senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia created quite a furore over the Internet. Netizens started speculating that the missing ‘Congress’ from the bio may have more than what meets the eye. However, all doubts were put to rest, for now, when Scindia clarified to news agency ANI that he had changed his Twitter bio a month back and not in recent past.
A cached copy of Scindia’s tweet of 3rd November shows his old bio where he had put out various posts he had held in the central government during the UPA regime.
That means, as of 3rd November 2019 at least Scindia had a detailed profile on Twitter. However, a cached copy of his 7th November 2019 tweet shows a changed bio.
As seen above, the cached copy of his tweet on 7th November wishing on Bipinchandra Pal’s birth anniversary had a changed bio. A cached copy refers to the copy of websites which Google stores after it has crawled through the page. These are helpful when pages are unavailable and need to be accessed at future date or when one needs to access an older version of an updated web page.
Hence, from the above it an be seen that Scindia has changed his profile on Twitter any time between 3rd and 7th November, 2019. Jyotiraditya Scindia had changed his Twitter bio at least two weeks back.
Scindia has said that he had changed his Twitter bio a month ago. Refuting the rumours of him quitting Congress, he had done so on the basis of people’s advice that his bio should be shorter. However, the rumours were fuelled after his recent statements where he had gone against the party line and voiced his support to the Narendra Modi-led central government on issues like abrogation of Article 370.
