"Block is a feature that helps you control how you interact with other accounts on Twitter. This feature helps users in restricting specific accounts from contacting them, seeing their Tweets, and following them." -- Twitter.
Like many others on Twitter, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who promptly responds to distress calls on the micro-blogging site seems to be using the site's 'block' feature regularly to keep unwanted trolls at bay.
On Monday, several Twitter users began tagging Sushma Swaraj's husband, criminal lawyer Swaraj Kaushal, asking him exactly why they had been blocked by her. Kaushal responded with irritation, satire, self-deprecation and, basically, with humour, winning Twitter over.
Requests started pouring in.
He was playing safe.
While wondering just what was going on.
He even 'warned' others.
And answered some very pertinent questions.
He wasn't complaining.
Sidestepping provocation with a wry observation.
And underscoring basic life facts.
Together after many years - a chance meeting with @governorswaraj at the Parliament House gate today. /1 pic.twitter.com/yHvD0NliSt— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) August 11, 2016
