I refuse to be chased off Twitter, Omar

PTI 29 Jun 2012, 14:04:00 IST
Srinagar, Jun 29: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said he would not be chased off the social networking site Twitter by online “trolls” “Some times I ask myself what I'm doing here (on Twitter), I guess I refuse to be chased off by trolls,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

Omar is one of the several high-profile politicians in the country who share their views on the micro-blogging site.  

The Chief Minister has to often face hostilities on Twitter where users continuously taunt and abuse him.  

In the Internet slang, ‘trolls' are those users who post on an online group with the sole purpose of disrupting the discussion.

In 2008, Omar had to shut his blog after facing “heaps of personal abuse” by users.

The Chief Minister yesterday faced an online ‘taunt' that “in Kashmir CM stands for Curfew Minister”.
