Disclaimer - this is complete fiction :D Names used are fictional. They never exist.This Businessman mentioned here is an asshole who loves tweeting like few of you twitter addicts do .:P
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 into a social media boon. There are different pros and cons of using the same. This story shall be a lesson to 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 was a genteel person who was respected and honoured by most of the high class people. He belonged to a wealthy family and was a well mannered person. He had a beautiful loving wife Dipti and a really pretty adorable daughter Aishwarya . He came from a high social class. He led a simple and a normal life. Tweeting was his hobby and he loved doing this .To him twitter was not only a mean to express himself but a communication medium through which he can stay in contact with his friends and colleagues. After doing anything he would just tweet and let the world know.He was one of the richest and 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 20 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 Aishwarya yesterday"
Monday, 2.00 pm
"Having lunch at the Green Meridians with Abhijosh Bhatia..my good pal and colleague at Simons India ltd"
Monday, 8.00 pm
"Back home..a very tiring day..needs to ask Dipti to massage my back..can't move...Aish scored 90% in boards.m happy folks'
"good night Tweeple...have a great night...sleep well..sleep tight"
This used to be his regular tweets and for him twitter was a way through which he would express whats happening in his life. Several times he had tweeted about the amount of wealth and jewellaries he had with him at home.Luckily no one took a note of such tweets. But there were a group of guys who were noticing all this.They were modern thiefs who usually follow celebrities and loot them. Its poverty which would spur them to do such activities.They silently followed Rahul Kumar in twitter and were keenly observing all his tweets and monitoring all his activities. They knew how much money Rahul had in his home.
It was a fine sunny Friday when Rahul tweeted
"folks, heading for Boston with Dipti and Aish...got a meeting with Ashok Badu, GM of Hiemens Inc.will brb on monday'
The very next day the group of notorious youngsters known for their innovatiove robbery techniques started with the execution of their plan. A flock of pigeons flew near Rahul Kumars bungalow as these masked men entered the bungalow. They broke the lock and the entered the bungalow without leaving a clue to the neighbourhood about whats happening inside. They soon filled their bags with the cash and Dipti and Aishwarya's jewellaries.They accumulated all the cash and escaped.
The very next day the first news on the India Times was .
"Money worth 17 Crores looted from Business Tycoon Rahul Kumars Bandra bungalow"
Moral: Never tweet personal stuffs in twitter.You might not know when something might go wrong and it would be a great loss for you. So better keep the virtual space as virtual. Lets not mix the real and the virtual world.
