Smita Sabharwal to quit Twitter?

Sat Nov 19 2022 11:38:54 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)

In a shocking decision, a senior IAS officer associated with the Telangana CMO Smita Sabharwal has decided to opt out of Twitter. She made an announcement to this effect on November 18. She tweeted thus: "In case it's real #GoodByeTwitter. Thank you to all. I had a lot of fun on this platform."



From the tone and tenor of her tweet, it appears that she has made this comment apparently in protest against Twitter's decision to monetise the Blue Tick. Smita, who has been exhibiting a decidedly woke approach through her tweets, has stirred up a controversy over her comments in the wake of remission to the rapists of Bilkis Bano.

However, she remained quite silent in several other cases of rape and gender discrimination in Telangana state. She drew flak for this silence. Several social media users also slammed her for not choosing to comment on the gory murder of Shraddha Walker, a Dalit woman who was hacked into 35 pieces by her live-in partner Aftab Amin in Delhi.

Several netizens expressed shock at her statement claiming that she would bid a goodbye to Twitter. They claimed she was a role model and an inspiration to them. Smita Sabharwal's last post prior to the November 18 post was uploaded five days ago. She tweeted lauding the budding artistes in the city.
