India’s top military research and development agency has a problem. And trust the agency which can successfully test fire a guided Pinaka and Agni 5 missile to be able to find a solution.
Unable to open their Facebook account, the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) asked the social network on Twitter — yeah, you read that right — how to get over their “sign in problem”. With slight hints at the panic within the organisation, the official Twitter handle, @DRDO_India, tweeted: “@facebook we are contacting u from Indian @DRDO_India our official page is not opening.” Soon after came a follow up tweet: “@facebook the url for the same is https://www.facebook.com/DPIDRDO/ … plz revert asap as this is official page (sign in problem)”
It seems those handling social media for DRDO are expecting Mark Zuckerberg himself to come up with a solution from California.
As expected, those who have better research and development on social media where quick to pounce on the post.
Two of them had very valid suggestions
@kiduva had a more nationalistic line
Anyway, the two tweets, don’t really show up well on the DRDO. Also, there has to be someone in India’s top defence research agency who has heard about the ‘Forgot Password’ option.
