Leading industrialist Ratan Tata’s Twitter account was hacked and a “spurious” tweet with “malicious intent” was made. All the netizens were shocked with this tweet. Tata’s previous tweet on his twitter account is dated September 1, 2015.
On Friday, a tweet by parody account @realhistorypic was shared by Tata’s account showed Reliance Industries Chief Mukesh Ambani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi together with the caption: Owner of Network 18 welcoming his employee to address people how (sic) cronies are going to halt inflation.
After the share by Tata, the @realhistorypic account responded to this with a guarded yet funny disclaimer: “Big folks are getting involved. We must be careful now onwards.
PS ~ All the characters and incidents of @realhistorypic are imaginary
Responding to this Ratan Tata tweeted after restoring his account. The tweet says:
“Shocked that my Twitter account was hacked yesterday and a spurious malicious was wrongly attributed to me. This spurious tweet has now been deleted and my Twitter account restored. I regret the inconvenience that this malicious and wrongful action may have caused,” he tweeted.
