Shashi Tharoor’s verbose tweets have, time and again, baffled, impressed and intrigued people on social media and generated some hilarious responses. It would perhaps be safe to say that people on social media are obsessed with Tharoor’s penchant for using words that would confound and have people rushing to the dictionary; something the MP from Thiruvananthapuram is not only clearly aware of, but his followers have now come to expect. In fact, he had even posted a tweet addressing it in his own Tharoorian way. But this Christmas, it seems like Tharoor has decided to go easy. His fans, however, are highly disapproving of the lack of grandiloquence in his greeting.

On December 24, he wished people on social media with a brief message that read, “‘Tis the season to be merry (& for some, to freeze!) Whether you are celebrating amid snow or with cotton balls masquerading as snow, may the festive spirit bring you good cheer at year’s end. But spare a thought for He who was born today to spread love, peace & brotherhood.”

Although his holiday wishes were welcomed, the conspicuous absence of any abstruse word caught the attention of people and they are clearly not too pleased with it. While one concerned user tweeted, “I was able to understand everything did you tweet it or your account is hacked?”, another expressed his disappointment saying, “No difficult words, not done. :(”

This is his tweet.

And this is how people responded to it.

Some even thought this was Tharoor’s Christmas gift to people on the Internet.
