In the era of social media where news travels at a lightening speed, nobody is spared or allowed to get away by making any comment or reacting to something that is wrong. Netizens are more efficient than the newsgounds and would jump over on a slightest mistake or remark. The fresh target is Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is trolling ovef his ’emails’ and ‘cloud’ comments.

Social media platform Twitter is abuzz with lakhs of netizens twittering over his remarks. During an interview the prime minister said it was in 1988 when he had used the email for the first time. He also said that it was around this time he used a ‘digital camera’ to take photographs of LK Advani during political rally and subsiquently attach them with the msil. PM Modi added that he had a digital camera which used to be quite big in size then. Pat came the reply from neizens who termed the claim totally ‘wrong’ as interet became available for common man on August 6, 1991 globally with ‘world wide web’ (www). According the history it was then US president Bill Clinton who used the email to send message to space on November 7, 1998. He sent an message in responce to an email sent by space astronaut John Glenn.

In India, internet became available to the common man on August 14, 1995 by the state-owned Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL).

Being election time, the issue has already spread like wild fire with the opposition parties mocking and condemning PM Modi for what they called ‘wrong wisdom’…
