People on social media have also pointed out that the KSPP and those associated with it have quietly deleted their tweets and posts where they introduced Nidhi Razdan as an Associate Professor at Harvard.

Twitter had erupted after Nidhi Razdan revealed that she had fallen for a phishing attack and that Harvard University had not really offered her a job. Following the revelation, Joshua Benton, senior director and former Director of the Nieman Journalism Lab of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University, clarified that Harvard University does not have a school of journalism or department of journalism and has no professors either.

As early as September 2020, a Twitter user had pointed out that the course does not appear on Harvard’s course list. Following the revelation, netizens had reacted to the matter questioning how she had fallen for the phishing attack.
