The Great Indian Twitter Robbery

Disclaimer - This is a work of fiction. All the characters are fictional. They never exist.The Businessman mentioned here is an asshole who loves tweeting like few of you  twitter addicts do!

This is the story of an Indian billionaire  whose story shall be a lesson to all the Twitter users. As we know, Twitter is turning out to be the greatest and the most famous child of the social media. There are different pros and cons of using the same. This story shall be a lesson to all Twitteratti's who  tweet a lot about their personal stuff.

Rahul Kumar is one of the board members of a famous  Insurance company. He was previously holding the post of  the vice president in an  IT company too. He seemed genteel, respected and honored by most of the high class  people. He belonged to an affluent family. He had a charming wife  Dipti and  an adorable daughter Aishwarya. He lived a simple life. Tweeting was his hobby  and one of his favorite past times. He used Twitter to interact with his followers and other subject matter experts. He expressed himself through this application. He would update all the little things of his life on Twitter.After having lunch, he would tweet about his meal. But still he was one of the most ubiquitous personalities around!

Every morning he would wake up and tweet  about the same.

Monday ,  5.00 am 
"Good Morning World , it seems to be an early day...got to jog 10 km today and then back to Yoga " 

Monday, 7.00 am
"Back from Yoga and Regular exercises ..Now going to attend natures call."

Monday, 9.00 am
"On my way to office folks, feels good today...gifted a diamond necklace to wife and ring to Aishu yesterday"

Monday, 2.00 pm
"Having lunch at the  Green Meridians with Abhijosh Bhatia, my good pal and  colleague at Simon's India ltd"

Monday, 8.00 pm
"Back home..a very tiring day..need to ask Dipti to massage my back..can't move...Aish scored 90% in boards.I'm happy folks!"

Monday, 10.00pm
"Good night Tweeple...have a great night...sleep well..sleep tight ( Shares his Sleeping selfie pic)"

We shared few of his regular tweets above. Several times he had even tweeted about the amount of wealth and jewelries at his home.Luckily no one took a note of  such tweets. But there were a group of guys who were noticing all this. They followed celebrities through the different social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and  spied them. Its adversity  that  would spur them to do such activities.They silently followed Rahul Kumar in twitter and were keenly monitoring him and all his tweets on Twitter. Sometimes they would even  favorite and retweet some of his tweets. Gradually they came to know about Rahul Kumar's daily routine. Thanks to Twitter for exposing his activities!

It was a fine sunny Friday when Rahul tweeted ..
"Folks, heading for Boston with Dipti and Aishu...got a meeting with  Ashok Badu, GM of  Hiemens Inc..will be bck on Monday'

The very next day the group of notorious youngsters known for their  innovative robbery techniques  started with the execution of their plan. It was an ambitious plan of mugging up precious items from Rahul Kumar's home. A flock of  pigeons flew near Rahul Kumar's bungalow as these masked men entered the bungalow. They broke the lock and the entered the bungalow without leaving a clue to the neighbors about what was  happening inside. They soon  filled their bags with the cash and Jewelries.They accumulated all the cash  and everything precious.  They soon flew away with all the money and items that they stole.

The next morning, news on Headlines today - 

"Assets worth 27 Crores looted from Business Tycoon Rahul Kumar's  Bandra bungalow" 


Moral: Never tweet about personal stuffs in Twitter.There might be someone prying on your account.  So better keep  a safe distance between your personal and virtual life. Let virtual be virtual. Lets not mix the real and the virtual world.

I don't want to say anything
I don't want to put anything down
You may find it funny and smile
You may find it weird and frown
I don't want to lie
I don't want to be true
So whatever you want to think
I leave up to you..........
