Yesterday, tweets full of expletives, and racist and homophobic slur were posted on Mr Gandhi’s timeline around 8.30 pm. They were deleted but new ones came up immediately. Rahul Gandhi’s profile picture was removed and the title was changed from @OfficeOfRG to “Retarded Gandhi”. The account was later restored.
This morning, a dozen abusive tweets were posted on Congress’s @INCIndia’s account.
“Mr Gandhi’s email account, the Congress’s Twitter page, its website and server have also been hacked“, the party said.
