The tweet was viral with more than 2,000 shares/RTs. On being countered, she said “the hate is all real”.
Her first tweet at the time I did the datapull had 1,617 shares. Even after getting exposed it kept getting shared and a fresh data pull showed 1,954 accounts- that is 337 shares. In India, a platform like Twitter isn’t used as much as say Facebook or Instagram. 300+ shares as such are significant.
