Accidental anti-Indian toolkit expose by Greta Thunberg
Following the footsteps of international pop star Rihanna and porn star Mia Khalifa, environmental activist Greta Thunberg had tweeted in support of ongoing farmer protests in India. She also tweeted about a ‘Toolkit’ that interested people can use to support her ‘cause.’ However, the toolkit was not just a resource file but an explosive document showing how anti-India forces have been trying to create unrest in India and demean India at an international platform.
Soon after the blunder was noticed and being discussed on social media platforms, Greta deleted the document, and all linked documents to it were either made private or moved or completely thrashed. However, by that time, a lot of content was downloaded, sorted and redistributed by social media users.
How was Nikita Jacob exposed?
While checking the documents, it came to light that Nikita Jacob had been allegedly editing documents much before it got viral on social media platforms, thanks to Thunberg. Here are some screenshots of the edit history of Google Documents that were being used to systematically organizing the anti-India movement on social media.
Jacob deleted her Twitter account after the expose.
