The Twitter account of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was hacked on Wednesday evening with a series of offensive tweets appearing on his timeline.
In all, seven tweets appeared in about five minutes but they were deleted shortly. However, the offensive tweets kept coming in after being deleted.
Congress Randeep Surjewala confirmed that Gandhi’s Twitter account was hacked, calling it ‘lowly tactics’.
@OfficeOfRG hacked. Such lowly tactics will never drown the sane voice of reason nor deter Sh. Rahul Gandhi from raising people’s issues.
