It is interesting to note that an account with more than 48,000 followers had only RTed a tweet on the Hashtag & had not himself tweeted. This is a common tactic used by big BJP trolls in even making hate speech viral to avoid getting reported. You can’t report RTs of hate speech. As such many BJP troll groups like HMP create new accounts and RT those tweets and themselves remain safe from getting suspended or banned. Twitter should allow people to report people RTing/sharing hate speech & fake news.
The first tweet on this hashtag was by an account followed by Kapil Mishra. There were numerous tweets & RTs by that account. It seems that this hashtag was planned and implemented by him as the ringleader. Many accounts had tweeted more than once on the hashtag.
Stay tuned for charts. Coming up in a while
