A Thread:

Here we have @bainjal (Swati Chaturveri) who claims that RW 'trolls' are 'tech savvy' yet 'uneducated'. You decide who is the real 'troll' here!

Let's search the word 'f*ck' in her TL, you will find a list of endless tweets where calling someone 'a f*ck wit' and block
We all know she has shown support for #MeToo movement (which we all appreciate without any doubt). She also took a firm stand on #MJAkbar case. Look at the posts that she made (more than 100).
Now let's see what's her stand in the #BishopFranco case (pic 1). Ohho...tch tch. That was a bummer. Probably she chose not to comment on all issues. Ok.

Then why does she want others to cover all the topics on same day (e.g. Modi tweeting on one topic and not other).

Thank you for the msgs of support and courage that I have received till now. I needed some time to gather my thoughts and relive what happened to me 8 years ago. #MeToo #MJAkbar 1/n
I’m better equipped to handle the trauma and stress if a similar incident happened today but as a 26-year-old who had just lost her father in 2010, I struggled badly. Today, I’m ready to talk about the sexual predator that is #MJAkbar. #MeToo 2/n
In 2010, I joined India Today in Kolkata. I was excited to be part of the organisation, my dream job. This job meant a lot to me coming a month after I lost my father, whose illness had compelled me to shift base from Delhi. #MJAkbar #MeToo 3/n
