Flight Delayed Miscommunication leads to “Fake Hijack” Tweet to Modi! See How Twitter Reacted

We often take our freedom of expression for granted. Social media has become a platform for expression of thoughts and opinions and some people have totally misused the platform for all the wrong reasons.

One has to be very careful with what they express on a platform that is exposed to the entire world. Just for the sake of it, people post on Facebook and Twitter.

The recent Twitter mishap is all thanks to one such user who miscommunicated on the platform to stir a wrong action. Nitin, a passenger on Jet Airways tweeted something that literally isn’t funny.

His flight which was supposed to land on Delhi got delayed and was diverted to Jaipur. The wait was as long as 3 hous. After that, the passenger tweeted something without actually knowing its aftermath.

He tweeted, “@narendramodi sir we have been in jet airways flight for past 3 hrs, looks like hijacked, pl help 9W3555”

Instead of asking any flight attendant of crew member, he did this insensitive thing and created a fake panic. The Indian security authorities came across the tweet and took it seriously. There was alert at Jaipur airport after he tweeted.

However, Jet Airways took note of it and gave out the right information to the authorities and they even made Nitin understand the reason behind the delay.

The people, however, aren’t much impressed with Nitin’s tweet, they thought it is not acceptable to create such panic that too regarding a serious issue like security in our public place like Airport.
