Twitter users in India woke up today to realize that an incredible 24 hours went by without an outrage over any subject. Avid tweeter Rakesh Kumar said this was the worst 24 hours of his life.
“It even beats the day Tommy ran away with that stray in the neighborhood,” Said a dejected Kumar.
Social media experts were perplexed over this sudden development. “I mean, it’s not as if Modi supporters have exited twitter. They’re still alive and kicking, so why don’t they outrage today? I don’t get it,” said Twitter celebrity Pintu Koshy. “Even Salman Khan supporters have had nothing to say about SRK. This shit is getting serious,” chipped in an exasperated Ramesh Kumar.
It also didn’t help matters that noted celebrity KRK didn’t post any tweet, thereby blowing up any chance of an outrage over what he could have possibly tweeted.
Avid Modi fan and editor Chanchal Gupta played down the lack of outrage and said it wasn’t as if they outraged every day in any case. “For instance, NDTV didn’t talk about Modiji for one full hour today, but did we outrage? No”.
Meanwhile, noted Economist Submarine Swamy attributed the lack of outrage to a nexus between the CIA, Jihadis and the LTTE. To the relief of bored twitter users, this promptly resulted another round of outrage, this time by Swamy fans over the alleged international conspiracy.
“All’s well that ends well,” said furious Rajeev Murthy, an alleged Swamy fan.
