Although he is a full-time MP from Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor sometimes takes to the Internet to impart a lesson or two to others in English. At times it’s on purpose, during others, it’s incidental. The last time this happened, he was responding to a broadcast channel’s remarks against him related to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar. He tweeted “Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations&outright lies being broadcast by an unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalst (sic)” as a response, causing everyone to go into a tizzy looking up the meanings of these words.

He tweeted “New Hinglish 21st century dictionary: *Webaqoof*: “one who believes every claim or allegation on the internet & social media must be true”.
