  1. There's only one person that the entire nation can seem to talk about right now and it's none other than Dinesh Karthik, after he led India to victory against Bangladesh last night. India needed 34 runs in the last two overs to win, and it was Dinesh Karthik's pyrotechnics that helped India win the Nidahas Trophy 2018. Yay! Nothing brings everyone in India together like cricket, and obviously desi people on Twitter. After the match, the portal was instantly flooded with jokes and memes, like always. Also, remember the hilarious 'Naagin Dance' meme that was floating around a few days ago? During a match, Bangladesh's Mushfiqur Rahim celebrated with an impromptu 'Naagin Dance' after defeating Sri Lanka, but now people are giving it back after India's victory. From 'DK Bose' memes, to hilarious jibes at the infamous 'Naagin Dance', Twitter had everything. But, let's start with Virender Sehwag's tweet, because it deserves a special mention. Wow! What a win. 2 overs , 34 runs to win the finals , #DineshKarthik pic.twitter.com/lGJgxdMoT7 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 18, 2018 Role reversal?

  2. “Can you suggest some really good talk shows to watch?” Rest of the world: Oh! You can check out 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' or 'Koffee With Karan'. They are really good. Me: 'Comedy Nights With Kapil' and 'The Kapil Sharma Show' are the best shows. Well, I am sure I am not the only one who feels the same way. If your late night plans on weekends include sitting in front of your TV sets and waiting for Kapil Sharma to roast his guests and people from the audience, you will know what I am talking about. K9 Productions However, it wasn't just Kapil Sharma's comedy that made us fall in love with the show. 'Gutthi' aka Sunil Grover was one who stole our hearts like no one else with his funny gigs and hilarious introduction style. K9 Productions And while we laughed our hearts out watching the two bicker on screen, their real life fight took us by storm because it was far from being funny or even mildly amusing. Almost everyone is aware of the fight that took place mid-air, between the two when they were coming back to Mumbai. Many stars left the show, some came back but the damage was already done and the show went off air citing bad ratings. Since then things have not been normal between the two and while we were hoping for the two to become friends again, things escalated way too quickly after Kapil announced his comeback with a new show on the same channel. Honestly, no episode from 'Bigg Boss' can ever come close to this fight. After a failed attempt at impressing people with 'Firangi', Kapil is all set to begin his new show 'Family Time With Kapil Sharma' and while we expecting 'Gutthi' or 'Dr. Mashhoor Gulati' to tickle our funny bones, looks like he wasn't given the offer. K9 Productions When someone asked him to come back on the show, he wrote on Twitter, “Bhai aap jaise kuch aur log bhi mujhse same poochte hain. Lekin mujhe iss show ke liye KOI call nahin aaya. Mera phone number bhi same hai. Intezar kar Ke ab maine kuch aur sign kar liya kal. Aap logon ki duaon se ek achhe project Ke sath juda hoon. Jaldi aapke samne Aata hoon.” Bhai aap jaise kuch aur log bhi mujhse same poochte hain. Lekin mujhe iss show ke liye KOI call nahin aaya. Mera phone number bhi same hai. Intezar kar Ke ab maine kuch aur sign kar liya kal. Aap logon ki duaon se ek achhe project Ke sath juda hoon. Jaldi aapke samne Aata hoonð https://t.co/t6n04SxtMK — Sunil Grover (@WhoSunilGrover) March 16, 2018 As expected, this tweet did not go down well with Kapil and he replied to Sunil saying that he called him 100 times and even went to his house, but he wasn't there. In fact, Kapil went on to say that Sunil should stop spreading rumours. Paji I called u more then 100 times n came to ur house to meet u twice .. every time u were out for some show n all .. pls don't spread rumors that I didn't call u. — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) March 17, 2018 Soon, a twitter battle started between two of the greatest comedians of India and their respective fans. Kapil even went on to say that Sunil is lying and that he will not let anybody take any advantage of his name. Don't want his support .. but at least he should not spread rumors.. m tired of all this. — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) March 17, 2018 But, Sunil hit the last nail by responding to Kapil Sharma's tweets. He wrote a long message stating how he is talking about the new show and stood firm on the fact that he wasn't called for it. He further asked him to take care of his health, “Kidney 2 aur liver 1 hee hai. Take care of your health.” We don't know if it was genuine or a jibe at his drinking habits, but things will only worsen from here on. @KapilSharmaK9 pic.twitter.com/nUUK1L0TfZ — Sunil Grover (@WhoSunilGrover) March 18, 2018 We wonder what Kapil has to say about this tweet? And while I was writing the story, Kapil already replied. The thing is u r smarter then me. u know when n how to play .. n I am a dumb emotional. — KAPIL (@KapilSharmaK9) March 18, 2018 We don't think this fight is going to end anytime soon. As for Kapil's new show, he has already roped in Ajay Devgn for the first episode, now only time will tell whether this fight or Sunil's absence affects his show or not.
  3. Imagine trying to sign into your account and realizing that you can't access it. Moreover, you also lost that precious blue tick mark on Twitter in the process. In short, nightmare, right? Something of a similar nature happened to the official account of Air India yesterday, and honestly, it is kind of hilarious. Basically, the account was hacked by suspected Turkish hackers, which caused a lot of confusion among passengers. Although there is no confirmation, it seems like the Turkish Airlines took over the account somehow since the cover photo was changed to that of Turkish Airlines and tweets in a different language started appearing. Or maybe, it was just the number one fan of Turkish Airlines trying to give it some free publicity. Along with some Pro-Turkish and threating tweets, there was one tweet announcing that all flights had been cancelled, however, it was all fake. I'm glad that I wasn't flying anywhere with Air India yesterday, the last-minute fake cancellation would have been stressful. The tweet read, “Last minute important announcement: All our flights have been cancelled. From now we will fly with Turkish Airlines” I really hope that was from Turkish Airlines because this is the best and the funniest marketing strategy I have ever seen. And, as if the tweets and the picture weren't enough to signify that, yes, the account was hacked. The hackers even went the extra mile and changed the handle from @airindiain to @airindiaTR. With the change in that, Air India also lost that blue verification tick for a while, because Twitter usually removes it for a brief time when a verified user's handle is changed. But, everything is back to normal now, yay! #FlyAI : Early today #AirIndia twitter handle @airindiain was hacked. We would like to inform our passengers, that the handle is fully functional now. Further there is no cyber security threat on this handle and security measures have been taken. Thank you @Twitter @TwitterIndia. — Air India (@airindiain) March 15, 2018
  4. Philander has said his Twitter account was hacked after an inflammatory message was posted suggesting Australian captain Steve Smith could have avoided an incident that resulted in Kagiso Rabada being suspended South African seamer Vernon Philander has said his Twitter account was hacked after an inflammatory message was posted suggesting Australian captain Steve Smith could have avoided an incident that resulted in Kagiso Rabada being suspended. Fast bowler Rabada made contact with Smith´s shoulder after dismissing him in the first innings of their six-wicket victory in the second test in Port Elizabeth. He was later found guilty of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player" by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and will miss the rest of the four-match series. The 22-year-old, who took 11 wickets in the match, has appealed the decision. The tweet, which had a video clip of the incident attached, said Smith was equally guilty and had milked the incident. "Haven´t really seen the footage of this incident but by the looks of this ... Steve Smith gave KG (Rabada) the shoulder," it said. "He could have avoided any contact but to me he is just as guilty. Trying some football skills to get a penalty??? Pity he didn´t dive to top it off." Early on Thursday, however, Philander distanced himself from the comment, saying someone else had posted to his 185,000 followers. "Waking up this morning to a lot of twitter craziness as my acc got hacked and someone posted a nice little article on my behalf," he posted after deleting the original message. "Sorry for all the drama or entertainment caused by the looks of it." The episode is the latest twist in a tempestuous test series that has seen five players punished by the ICC. In the first test in Durban, security cameras captured a heated argument between Warner and South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock after the teams left the field for tea on the fourth day. Warner said the wicketkeeper had made "vile and disgusting" comments about his wife. Warner was fined 75 percent of his match fee, while de Kock was fined 25 percent. Both were given demerit points. Rabada was handed three demerit points for the shoulder bump in Port Elizabeth, taking him to eight within a two-year period, which triggered an automatic two-match suspension. He was also given another demerit point for a send-off of Warner in the second innings. Australians Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Marsh are the other players to receive fines and demerit points in the series. The third match in the series, which is level at 1-1, starts in Cape Town on March 22.
  5. A Metatarsal bone fracture followed by his club's shambolic Champions League exit amid ever-growing rumours of a potential move to Real Madrid...it's safe to say that the last few weeks have not really been great for Neymar. For a man who is rapidly rising through the ranks to reach the league of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Neymar once again witnessed a forgetful moment, with his popularity taking a major hit. On 14 March, when the entire world was busy mourning the demise of Stephen Hawking, Neymar stirred up a storm with his distasteful tribute to one of the greatest minds in the history of mankind. Você tem que ter uma atitude positiva e tirar o melhor da situação na qual se encontra. Stephen Hawking pic.twitter.com/JE2MtyuT6b — Neymar Jr (@neymarjr) March 14, 2018 Taking to Twitter, the Brazillian footballer tweeted a photograph of himself while sitting in a wheelchair with a cast on his right leg. If the picture, in itself, wasn't controversial enough, Neymar's caption - "You Have To Have A Positive Attitude And Get The Best Out Of The Situation In Which You Find Yourself. Stephen Hawking" - did just about enough to rile up the mourners. Soon, the Paris Saint-Germain forward found himself at the reaceiving end with a flurry of insults being thrown at him. Many took offense to the fact that Neymar compared his foot injury with a terminal disease like ALS and deemed it as an insult to the great scientist. In which #Brazil soccer idol Neymar appears to equate Stephen Hawking's disability with his own broken pinky toe. #StephenHawking https://t.co/PIoaGzeV9X — David Biller (@DLBiller) March 14, 2018 It's the height of self-centeredness to put Hawking's death in terms of yourself. Neymar's temporary wheelchair situation is profoundly minor compared to the lifetime wheelchair situation Hawking had. I'm sure Neymar meant no harm, but come on. — Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) March 14, 2018 Eddie Redmayne stars as Neymar in "The Theory Of Everything Is About Me" — David Rudin (@DavidSRudin) March 14, 2018 Neymar there, with his sore metatarsal and sprained ankle, marking Stephen Hawking's death by cheerily comparing himself to quadriplegic Stephen Hawking 𤦠pic.twitter.com/f9bkh5AEhb — Nooruddean (@BeardedGenius) March 14, 2018 Neymar the diving bitch!!!! No ethics no morals no sympathy! I hope he lose all his money or even go to prison for like 10 years for frauds & tax evasions & avoidance!! https://t.co/Hrz5sM0JQh — KLOPPOmatic (@sportsliban) March 14, 2018 Neymar now officially BEGGING to be hated. Wow. — AzzurriFanPhil (@AzzurriFanPhil) March 14, 2018 Because a multimillionaire footballer stuck in a chair for a few weeks while a small bone heals is JUST like Stephen Hawking... Or maybe Neymar heard that this Hawking chap was obsessed with 'the stars'? https://t.co/zcwurO8rym — Sebastian Smith (@SebastianAFP) March 14, 2018 Griezmann: How can I offend the whole of the internet? Neymar: Hold my beer... https://t.co/uKeF4M8tIl — James Kilby (@jameskilby1) March 14, 2018
  6. When celebrities suffer through a tragic event, the whole world tries to pay their respects online, because everyone needs support at their moment of need. But, for some reason when Karan Johar came out and shared an unfortunate and emotional event, all of Twitter came out to troll him. I just want to ask everyone something – who hurt you? This man is clearly suffering, why are you laughing at him like this? He himself took to his Twitter to just inform all of his fans and friends what had happened to him, and got no respect in return. I'm ashamed. Let's see his tweet and decide if it required so much trolling, because I personally think everyone was just being very insensitive. © star world Here we have Karan Johar, sharing his life-shattering experience with paps on Twitter with his 14.8 million followers. Please prepare yourself, it's very heart-breaking and can cause emotional distress. Was about to land! Wore a new jacket! Product in hair! Big sun glasses were put on! New bag pack positioned for capture! And then....the worse thing happened!!!!! The paps Were NOT there!!!!! Shattered! Will now repeat this look and pray! — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 11, 2018 A moment of silence for his traumatic experience. No hate, this is a very sensitive matter. Karan, I totally feel you and I completely relate to you. Don't worry, we're holding a special prayer for you in our office. You know how whenever you post something on Twitter, you always get trolled, especially when you're a celebrity? KJo was not spared because people are cruel and were just laughing at his unfortunate experience. The first troll to come out of her shell was Parineeti Chopra. Please have some respect, the man is struggling here. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA karannnnn yaaaaaa ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ @karanjohar — Parineeti Chopra (@ParineetiChopra) March 11, 2018 Everyone can feel you Karan, even Ileana D'Cruz.

  7. If Priya Prakash Varrier's video taught us anything, it is that some people can literally get a million followers with just a wink; while the rest of us have to spend most of our time sending requests to our friends in hopes that they will follow us back. © YouTube Well, having said that, I think we all know the basic universal rule of social media - the more followers you have, the more viral your posts go and naturally, more virality brings more fame. Everyone loves followers on social media. While we crib about the number of 'I can literally count on my fingers' followers, nothing pinches more than knowing that more than half of those followers are fake. Our PM Narendra Modi and the world got to know of this bitter truth in the most hilariously painful way, after a Twitter audit revealed that 60% of his Twitter followers are fake. © wikimedia So trusting my calculation skills, out of Modi's 41 million followers if 60% are fake, it means approximately only 26 million followers are real. When the data was released on February 21, Modi had 40.3 million followers according the statistics. In less than a month he earned 7 million more followers. Honestly, this massive jump is way more promising than those hair-gain or weight-loss in 30 days messages. © wikimedia Last year, Modi was rewarded with the title of being the world's most followed leader across all social media platforms. Who knew that the pool of victory he was swimming in all this while will be shrunk by half, all thanks to the fake followers. Look at the bright side, just like any other list, Modi managed to top this one too. Although we don't think he will be any happier to know this. World Leaders and their Fake followers Some of the most followed world leaders and their share of bot followers as determined by https://t.co/TdNIomSdNt. Graphics prepared by @Saosasha @gzeromedia#DigitalDiplomacy pic.twitter.com/viid9ZTReV — Twiplomacy ð (@Twiplomacy) February 21, 2018 According to a report published in Outlook, these followers include internet bots and inactive followers. Internet bots are kind of “an automated application that helps to imitate workings of accounts of actual humans.” But Modi is not alone. The list includes some of the world's biggest names like Donald Trump (37%), Pope Francis (59%), Pena Nieto (47%), King Salman (8%), Taylor Swift (19%) and Kim Kardashian (44%). At 37% fake followers, this list comes as an assurance that a lot of people are now saved from Trump's covfefe tweet and his childish argument with North Korea. After this revelation, we have realized one thing. Memes are not the only savage thing Twitter can think of to mess with someone. It has a lot of evil cards up its sleeves. This data was determined by Twitter Audit's algorithm, which factors in number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratios of followers to friends.
  8. With the highly-anticipated players' auction already setting the ball rolling, the Indian Premier League (IPL) once again got the cricket fans excited after releasing the much-talked about anthem for its eleventh edition, slated to begin from 7 April. In a unique partnership, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Star India collaborated for the very first time to create the anthem for this year's campaign. Taking to Twitter, Star Sports - the official broadcaster of the IPL - released the promotional video. Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia pic.twitter.com/NgivOugSqB — Mahendra Singh Dhoni (@msdhoni) 12 March 2018 Titled 'Best vs Best', the gripping lyrics, swanky tunes and touching scenes of the promotional video successfully encompass the spirit of the IPL - a tournament which takes pride in bringing the best in business together. The anthem has been released in five languages - Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, Kannada and Telugu - across all platforms (TV, radio and web). A talented ensemble of artists worked on the anthem including South African film maker Dan Mace, music director Raajeev V Bhalla and vocalist Siddhart Basrur - who sung the anthem in five different languages. Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia pic.twitter.com/NgivOugSqB — Mahendra Singh Dhoni (@msdhoni) 12 March 2018 The anthem, since its release, has taken the social media by storm, instigating a welcome tweet from none other than Chennai Super Kings (CSK) thala MS Dhoni himself. The CSK skipper took to Twitter and praised the campaign by saying: "Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia". My best moment of the Anthem @ChennaiIPL ðð¥ðð¥ðð¥ð pic.twitter.com/ULBd9B6VNB — sandesh (@im_sandy1999) March 12, 2018 “The very essence of IPL is a thrilling, action-packed celebration of cricket where the best of talent take on each other in one of the most gruelling cricket tournaments in the world. It is a fantastic celebration of both the game and its millions of fans across the world.

  9. The Indian cricket team has enjoyed a prolific run against South Africa in their backyard. The visiting team hammered the Proteas, first in the One-Day International (ODI) and then in the Twenty20 International (T20I) series. Theirs has been an all-round performance that eventually helped them derive favorable results in hostile territory. But, before you mistake this for Virat Kohli & Co, let us state that we're in fact talking about the lesser known Indian team comprised of women cricketers who also scripted history with their double series win on a single tour of the Rainbow Nation for the very first time. BCCL However, despite their hard work and efforts, the Indian women cricketers continue to play the second fiddle to their male counterparts with lesser viewership and fanfare. So, when Amitabh Bachchan - one of Bollywood's greatest actor and probably the biggest celebrity - goofed up in his congratulatory message to the Indian women's team, we bet, the girl's weren't surprised and neither were we. Taking to Twitter, Mr. Bachchan said: "YEEEAAHHH !! CONGRATULATIONS Indian Women's Cricket Team Historic Series win against Australia in T20 and ODI games. terrific character, batting and fielding .. that catch by Jemimah on the boundary, OUTSTANDING !! you make us PROUD Indians". T 2740 - YEEEAAHHH !! CONGRATULATIONS Indian Women's Cricket Team Historic Series win against Australia in T20 and ODI games .. terrific character, batting and fielding .. that catch by Jemimah on the boundary, OUTSTANDING !! you make us PROUD Indians ..ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/qubUElSoK6 — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) March 11, 2018 If the fact that Big B's congratulatory message came 16 days after the Mithali Raj-led team's triumph wasn't saddening enough, the Bollywood megastar further attracted criticism for forgetting that the women's team were playing against South Africa and not Australia - a costly mistake that soon earned him a lot of flak. With BCCI's recent contracts for men's and women's team already being slammed as unfair for the latter by the fans and pundits alike, Bachchan Sr.'s faux pas only added to the furore with many pointing out the sorry state of female cricketers in the country. r u watching highlights???? ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ — VIRENDER SEHWAG (@virendr_sehwag) March 11, 2018 This happened a few weeks back, we defeated South Africa.

  10. This week, the world woke up to witness some serious allegations against Indian Cricketer Mohammed Shami. For those who don't know, Shami's wife Hasin Jahan has accused him of not only cheating with several women, but also for domestic violence, match-fixing and attempt to murder. To 'prove' her claims, she went ahead and revealed the WhatsApp and Facebook chats of her husband with different women. Mohammed Shami's wife exposing Shami with her Facebook posts.

He is of the view that all this is just a conspiracy and is baseless Hi I'm Mohammad Shami. Ye jitna bhi news hamara personal life ke bare may chal raha hai, ye sab sarasar jhut hai, ye koi bahut bada humare khilap sajish hai or ye mujhe Badnam karne or mera game kharab karne ka kosis ki ja rahi hai. — Mohammad Shami (@MdShami11) March 7, 2018 While the Kolkata police has started investigating the matter, after a complaint filed by his wife, it is too early to comment on whether all of this is true or not. But you know what happens when something is all over the internet, right? A plethora of memes emerge because that's just how the internet deals with everything. 1.

  11. For anyone who uses Twitter or any other social media portal for that matter, getting a 'blue tick' feels like the ultimate goal. Even if you deny it on the surface, you know in your heart that you have always wanted it too. Who wouldn't like some social media validation? © Twitter But unfortunately, getting that much-coveted tick does not come easy. You either need to be a celebrity or a public figure or basically have some kind of influence in the society. And obviously, the number of followers one has makes a huge difference too. The blue mark soon became a status symbol of sorts. © Twitter And now, after years of demand, Twitter is planning to work on it and give us mere mortals the joy of being verified on the platform. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently revealed that they are working on a new process to verify people's identity and ensure credibility. He said, “The intention is to open verification to everyone and to do it in a way that is scalable, we're not in the way and people can verify more facts about themselves, and we don't have to be the judge and imply any bias on our part.” © Facebook This comes after widespread criticism from users when Twitter verified a few white supremacists, as people believe that if someone has a verified account, it means that Twitter is endorsing their views. But that is definitely not the case. Being verified essentially is a means to establish the identity of the person. One of Twitter's product directors, David Gasca further explained, “They think of it as credibility. Twitter stands behind this person, Twitter believes that this person is someone that — what they're saying is great and authentic, which is not what at all that we mean by the checkmark.” Now the good news is that this step by the platform will definitely make its users extremely happy. But but but, we have no information as to when and how this will be implemented. Twitter is still trying to figure out how to go about this and how they should change the notions attached with this 'verification'. As soon as that is all sorted, we will get our blue ticks.
  12. The masthead of US President Donald Trump's Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) as of July 11, 2017. @realDonaldTrump/Handout via REUTERS/Files NEW YORK: A federal judge on Thursday expressed scepticism about whether US President Donald Trump can constitutionally block Twitter users whose views he does not like from following and retweeting from his own Twitter account. At a hearing in Manhattan federal court, US District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald asked Trump?s lawyer Michael Baer whether letting Trump bar users from @realDonaldTrump would violate their First Amendment free speech rights. She asked whether Twitter was different from a public town hall, where government officials would be unable to pull the plug from a microphone to mute speakers with unwelcome views. ?Once it is a public forum, you can?t shut somebody up because you don?t like what they?re saying,? Buchwald said. Baer said the appropriate analogy was not a town hall, but rather Trump choosing to walk away from someone at a public event. ?The president has an associational interest in deciding who he?s going to spend his time with in that setting,? he said. Buchwald scheduled the hearing to consider Trump?s request to dismiss a lawsuit filed in July over his use of Twitter by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and several Twitter users. They said Trump?s account is a public forum, and that the president cannot block Twitter users simply because they criticize, mock or disagree with him in replies to his tweets. Trump?s Twitter use draws intense interest for his unvarnished commentary, including attacks on critics. His tweets often shape news and are retweeted tens of thousands of times. Baer, who works for the US Department of Justice, has also argued that Trump?s use of Twitter was personal, and did not qualify as a ?state action.? In contrast, Katherine Fallow, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, told Buchwald the record ?shows unambiguously that the president operates his account in an official capacity.? She said Trump often uses Twitter to announce policies or policy proposals, such as banning the military from accepting transgender recruits. Twitter lets users post snippets of text, called tweets, to which other users may respond. When one user blocks another, the blocked user cannot respond to the blocker?s tweets. It is not clear when Buchwald will rule.
  13. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had attracted a lot of criticism after failing to pay the match fees to over 500 domestic cricketers over the last two years. And, to make matters worse, their latest contract system for the senior men's and women's team seems to have added to their woes. The new contract system and compensation structure announced by the Indian cricket board came as a massive surprise for many, especially in the wake of a massive pay disparity between Virat Kohli's men and the Mithali Raj-led women's team. The introduction of a new A+ category by the BCCI saw Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah earn Rs 7 crore apiece. Players placed in the A, B and C category would go on to bag a lucrative sum of Rs 5 crore, Rs 3 crore and Rs 1 crore respectively. #TeamIndia Senior Men retainership fee structure: Grade A+ players to receive INR 7 cr each Grade A players to receive INR 5 cr each Grade B players to receive INR 3 cr each Grade C players to receive INR 1 cr each — BCCI (@BCCI) March 7, 2018 Given the fact that there was no Grade A+ contract last year, the Grade A players received Rs 2 crore while the cricketers kept in Grade B and C ended up raking in Rs 1 crore and Rs 50 lakh, respectively. Given their recent exploits including the historic series triumph in South Africa, it was pretty understandable to see the massive hike in the pay structure for the men's side. But, while Kohli & Co. ended up bagging big bucks, a lot of eyebrows were raised over the compensation structure for the Indian women's team. Despite a successful outing in the Rainbow Nation, the Indian women's team was alotted a top bracket of just Rs 50 lakh - half the money when compared to the lowest grade for the men's team. #TeamIndia Senior Women retainership fee structure: Grade A players to receive INR 50 lacs each Grade B players to receive INR 30 lacs each Grade C players to receive INR 10 lacs each pic.twitter.com/u05YDFocWN — BCCI (@BCCI) March 7, 2018 According to BCCI's new pay structure for the women's team, a Grade A cricketer including the likes of Mithali, Jhulan Goswami, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, would be paid Rs 50 lakh, a Grade B player would get Rs 30 lakhs and a Grade C star would only be paid Rs 10 lakhs. It's needless to say that despite consistently proving their mettle on the international circuit, the women's team were still far from getting their due. And, there was no surprise to see a lot of backlash on the social media. Slamming the Indian cricket board for their biased pay structure, the cricket fans came out all guns blazing on the social media. Dear @BCCI please show your appreciation for women's cricket by reducing this appalling pay gap. And please negotiate contracts for telecast of their matches. We have an excellent team that a lot of us fans regret not being able to watch perform regularly. pic.twitter.com/rlPMmuTtcU — Nikhil Mehra (@TweetinderKaul) March 7, 2018 BCCI Retainer Fee: ðMen: Grade A+ INR 7 Cr Grade A INR 5 Cr Grade B INR 3 Cr Grade C INR 1 Cr ðWomen: Grade A INR 50 Lacs Grade B INR 30 Lacs Grade C INR 10 Lacs Women's Top Grade Fee Is Half Of Men's Lowest Grade Fee.

  15. It's Gabriel Garcia Marquez's 91st birthday today and even though he is not present in the physical world but his beautiful legacy of work ensures that he stays on in spirit amongst us. The Nobel Prize winner, who gifted us gems like 'One Hundred Years Of Solitude' and 'Chronicle Of A Death Foretold', is remembered for his theory of 'magic realism' and how he put South America on the literature map with such glory.

  16. Alec Baldwin (left) and US President Donald Trump. Photos: File Donald Trump sparked a Twitter war with Alec Baldwin on Friday, reviving his public opprobrium of the actor's critically acclaimed role impersonating the president on hit television show "Saturday Night Live." If Baldwin started the row by telling The Hollywood Reporter in an interview that it was "agony" to play the 71-year-old commander-in-chief, regardless of picking up an Emmy award for his efforts, Trump hit back in good measure. "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony," Trump wrote in a pre-dawn tweet. "Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch," Trump said. Baldwin, a father of four whose career only a few years ago was dogged by run-ins with the paparazzi, had told The Hollywood Reporter of his portrayal of Trump: "Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't." Trump's original tweet misspelled both the actor's first name as 'Alex' and dying as "dieing." He later corrected both mistakes. Baldwin, 59, himself well-known for his outspoken views and support of the Democratic Party, was quick to fire off a series of scathing tweets in response. "Agony though it may be, I'd like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride," he tweeted. "You know. The Good Stuff. That we?ve all been waiting for." He then suggested he was looking forward to Trump's post-office presidential library ? which former US heads of state customarily establish after their stint in the White House. "A putting green. Recipes for chocolate cake. A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on. A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars. You're in and out in five minutes. Just like..." he tweeted. The actor then took a potshot at Trump's marriage, adding: "Mr President... please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets." Clearly riled by the president's portrayal of his career, he signed off with the parting shot that he was heading to the set of upcoming crime movie "Motherless Brooklyn," which he is shooting with the likes of Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe and Bruce Willis. "If this is mediocrity, give me more," he tweeted. Baldwin's Trump is a wildly popular character on SNL. The president used to lash out fairly regularly against Baldwin and the show, but Friday's was the first such barb in a while.
  17. In his recent interview, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak mentioned that Indians measure success with academic excellence and a good job, but lack creativity. “The culture here is one of success based upon academic excellence, studying, learning, practiSing and having a good job and a great life. For upper India, not the lower. I see two Indias. That's a lot like Singapore study, study, work hard and you get an MBA, you will have a Mercedes but where is the creativity? The creativity gets left out when your behaviour is too predictable and structured, everyone is similar. Look at a small country like New Zealand, the writers, singers, athletes, it's a whole different world,” he told the interviewers Pankaj Doval and Surojit Gupta. According to Woz, India has Infosys as an example of the big tech company and even that is not very innovative. We all know how true his statements are. India has been very competitive in terms of education for decades now, students are often burdened with earning and looking after their family since a young age. In circumstances like these, the education system, as well as the social mindset, is to concentrate on academics and move on in a safe and secure fashion. Citizens of developed countries have a cushion available, this enables them to try out new things and explore 'extra-curricular' activities. But as usual, there will always be a lot of people who'll take offence to Woz's statement. How dare an outsider who has no idea how things work here to comment on our lack of creativity? Tweets: So Steve Woz says Indians lack creativity. There's a reason why Steve Jobs got rid of this dolt earlier in the life of @Apple : and as for our creativity: he needs to spend a lifetime understanding Jugaad. — SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) February 27, 2018 Steve Wozniak says Indians aren't creative. I bet he hasn't heard about the PNB bank fraud. — Nischal (WazirX) (@NischalShetty) February 27, 2018 Take back your words Mr. Steve Woz. It was an indian who made the world's cheapest car ( nano). It was because of an Indian you are able to add zeros ( because it was an Indian who gave the world the number zero) behind the cost of your cheap mobile phones. — Satyanarayanan (@satish1468) February 26, 2018 Steve Woz stole code and hardware and made apple PC which was not even a new invention.

Lulz — Harshal (@Bhoolwerine) February 27, 2018 Woz... I believe you don't have knowledge to judge creativity cause only creative people understand others creativity — Kaushal (@Kaushal925Kumar) February 27, 2018 May be he should come to India and live here for a week. He will get to know how creative Indians are. NASA is running because of 30 percent Indians only. The only reason we are lagging behind is because of bad politics in our country.

The 800 odd years of rule has killed that ecosystem that helped such creativity to thrive. We are in the process of rebuilding that ecosystem. We wl get there — SCM Consultant (@oarhtanirs) February 27, 2018 I think Steve Woz is right! India is busy accumulating and not creating...

  18. The sixth edition of the Lahore Literary Festival kicked off on Friday. Previous editions have played host to such luminaries as Naseeruddin Shah, Basharat Pir, and Mona Eltahaway. The line up this year did not disappoint with famed religious scholar Reza Aslan and Emmy award winner Riz Ahmed leading the coveted list. Twitter, of course, had a lot to say about the festival. Here are some of the reactions from fans and detractors: Riz Ahmed and Reza Aslan draw in crowds Controversy precedes LLF LLF will continue till Sunday, the 25th of February.
  19. After closely following the ongoing Winter Olympics at PyeongChang, I have come to realize two things. First, there is a giant '***** Park' in South Korea. Second, South Korea is basically hosting 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' version 2.0 in the name of Olympics. Why? Because, the difficult games and the equally tough conditions have danger written all over it. © twitter - @kianileila While the world's best athletes are fighting it out at PyeongChang, the world's best brains on Twitter are busy reviving their kind of Olympics. Prepare yourself for the return of 'Selfie Olympics', guys. And this time, the competition is tougher than anything else in the world. © twitter - @Jonas_Chimbanda Selfie Olympics came into being during the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia, after fans started posting hilarious pictures of themselves with the most random things they could get their hands on. And this time too, the entries are brilliant and ridiculously hilarious. Honestly, it is games like these, which give us the assurance that even we can make it to the Olympics, so what if it has Selfie written in front it.

  20. SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter announced Wednesday a crackdown on accounts powered by software ?bots? which can artificially amplify a person or cause and which have been accused of manipulating the social network during the 2016 US election. The San Francisco messaging platform said the move was intended to rid the service of spam-spewing automated accounts, and not aimed at people using the service according to the rules. ?These changes are an important step in ensuring we stay ahead of malicious activity targetting the crucial conversations taking place on Twitter ? including elections in the United States and around the world,? Twitter developer policy lead Yoel Roth said in a blog post. The move was the latest by Twitter to enforce rules aimed at curbing disinformation, propaganda and provocation. Since the 2016 election, Twitter and others discovered how ?bots? had been used to sow political divisions and spread hoaxes. ?One of the most common spam violations we see is the use of multiple accounts and the Twitter developer platform to attempt to artificially amplify or inflate the prominence of certain tweets,? Roth wrote. ?To be clear: Twitter prohibits any attempt to use automation for the purposes of posting or disseminating spam, and such behaviour may result in enforcement action.? Posting duplicative content, replies or mentions from an array of accounts one controls, by hand or by bot, is forbidden, according to Twitter. ?Bulk, aggressive, or very high-volume automated retweeting" is also banned, along with using multiple accounts to perform automated actions at the service such as following people, Roth said. A sole exception to the rule was applications designed to broadcast weather, emergency or other public service type announcements, according to Twitter. Developers were given until March 23 to bring applications into compliance with the tightened rules or risk suspension. ?Keeping Twitter safe and free from spam is a top priority for us,? a Twitter spokesperson said. ?Today?s update to TweetDeck and our developer platform is an important change to ensure we stay ahead of malicious activity targetting conversations on Twitter.? Follower counts fall The crackdown is part of an effort to weed out automated and fake accounts, a move which rankled some conservative personalities. Some users woke on Wednesday to find a sharp drop in followers, prompting a series of hashtags on the platform such as #TwitterLockOut and #TwitterPurge. The cause was an ongoing effort to ?identify suspicious account behaviours that indicate automated activity? or other policy violations, a Twitter spokesperson told AFP. And, despite conspiracy theories that quickly gained traction at Twitter, the service denied any political bias. ?Twitter?s tools are apolitical,? the spokesperson said. ?This is part of our ongoing, comprehensive efforts to make Twitter safer and healthier for everyone.? Twitter last month said the number of Russia-linked accounts firing off tweets evidently aimed at the US election in 2016 was more widespread than initially determined. An indictment issued this week by US special counsel Robert Mueller, investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, named the Internet Research Agency, described as a bot and disinformation operation which sought to sow divisions in American society using social media.
  21. Nirav Modi is currently absconding from the country after the unbelievable PNB scam hit headlines everywhere. It's pretty obvious that this entire situation became the onus of attention on Twitter, following which the Twitterati launched their version of operation 'Finding NiMo'! Finding NiMo. ~a movie by Punjab National Bank — Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) February 15, 2018 Somewhat apt that this Nirav Modi scam broke on Valentine's Day.

If I put money in bank - Nirav Modi takes it. If I put money in cricket - Lalit Modi takes it.

Rest of India can continue dreaming in Acche Din land. — Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) February 16, 2018 Jokes aside, this disturbing trend of people duping banks and absconding needs to dealt with alacrity. First it was Lalit Modi, then Vijay Mallya and now Nirav Modi. Clearly, revoking passports and involving the Interpol is not really doing anything. If you don't pay your credit card bill for one month or forget your EMI payment, the banks make life hell for you, I wonder how do these people get away. Also, can someone please explain how did he catch a flight and leave the country without anyone stopping the guy or realising where was he going?
  22. Priya Prakash Varrier might seem like a name that is unheard of for many, let alone Indian cricket fans. But, for those who have access to the internet and swear by life on social media, the 18-year-old is no less than a celebrity now. The budding Malayalam actress dramatically rose to popularity after a clip from her upcoming movie surfaced on social media. Since then, her kinky wink and seductive smile has become the talk of the town. The clip went viral on the web within a few hours of it being shared and Priya floored everyone with her irresistible charm. Thank you so much for the love and support for #ManikyaMalarayaPoovi#OruAdaarLove. 4.3 Million views for YouTube & counting, 600k+ for me going bigger in Instagram. ð ð #MondayMotivation #PriyaPrakashVarrier pic.twitter.com/vKLLQKiho2 — Priya Prakash Varrier (@ppriyavarrier) February 12, 2018 All of a sudden, everyone on social media was interested in this cute girl who seems to have become the national crush. While her acting career is set to take off with her debut film 'Oru Adaar Love' slated for release next month, the viral clip from her movie has also led to a great influx of followers on her Instagram profile. © Instagram/@priya.p.varrier But, the popularity of the girl - who went viral with a wink - hit an all-time high after netizens used her clip to create funny memes involving none other than popular Indian cricketers. While Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are miles away negating the South Africans, their memes alongside this B.Com student has taken social media by storm. © Instagram/@priya.p.varrier While Team India outcast Gautam Gambhir was branded as 'Sakhth Launda', Dhoni and Kohli have been left drooling over the girl's expression. And, to top it all, the creative minds didn't even spare Team India coach Ravi Shastri. As the Indian cricket team gears up for the fifth ODI, these hilarious memes should keep their fans busy in the meantime: Mahi â¤â¤â¤â¤ #PriyaPrakashVarrier pic.twitter.com/KTrnCkkQ47 — Shash (@pokershash) February 11, 2018 #PriyaPrakashVarrier effect â¤â¤ pic.twitter.com/BJxcY66ccx — Mr. STARK (@twt921debo) February 12, 2018 Even virat kohli like ....

  23. You must have heard about a lot of people who've had success with dating apps like Tinder. But it's rare that we see people finding their soulmate on Twitter. The first question that pops up is 'How much can you convey in 140 characters anyway?' Turns out, a lot. So it started in 2014 when Torey Stachowicz, who was a site merchandising manager at American Greetings and a personal trainer in her spare time, decided to give her a love life a long shot by asking a man out on Twitter. In what would have seemed like a random tweet, she wrote that she wants to go on a date with Ben Axelrod. I want to go on a date with @BenAxelrod — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 Her move, though extremely bold, bore fruit almost instantly when Ben, who is a digital producer and sportswriter, replied to her tweet asking her if she would pay for the date. @toreydanae you buying? — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) December 4, 2014 What followed was a series of tweets that will make you think, 'Why didn't I ever try dating on Twitter?' She replied saying that she would pay for the food at his favourite place. “@BenAxelrod: @toreydanae you buying?” Haha yes I will, your favorite place too — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 However, Ben didn't care about the place. He only cared about chicken fingers. After all, priorities. @toreydanae nah, if you're buying, you can pick. Just make sure they have chicken fingers. — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) December 4, 2014 And just like that, it was done. @BenAxelrod done and done — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 Their Twitter romance gained a lot of attention at the time, but soon after, it was forgotten. Who can keep track of a social media romance anyway? However, these two proved that they weren't just any other random couple who would hook up once and then move on. They stuck with each other for over 3 years when Ben decided it's time to pop the big question. And what better way than asking it on Twitter? Linking back to Torey's 2014 tweet, Ben confessed that he now wants to marry her. I want to marry @toreydanae https://t.co/gJxNBqyTNY — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) February 11, 2018 And that was followed by an adorable picture of the two, with Ben proposing to Torey. On his knees, of course! I bent the knee. She said yes! pic.twitter.com/nVwPHtpxOx — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) February 11, 2018 She obviously said yes and within a day, their engagement announcement went viral across the internet. And twitterati is always here for such social media romances. 1. Turns Out, Parents Can Be Wrong Sometimes. Oh wow congratulations! My parents told me to never ask a guy out for a date! But they might be wrong. I need more courage like @toreydanae — Sarah (@RealSarah103) February 11, 2018 2. Good Job You Guys!

Go ahead and give it a try. Who knows, you might just get lucky like these two.
  24. MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan reached a social media milestone on Sunday when he crossed 33 million followers on Twitter. To thank his followers, Khan posted a video on his Twitter account in which he is seen wearing a tuxedo. ?I thought every time we reach a big number I should always do something special for you. But normally I don?t get the time. But today I have the time so I gelled my hair back, wore my coolest dark glasses and I am even wearing a bow tie, a full tuxedo,? Khan said in the video. The king of Bollywood then jumps into a pool and dialogues from some his famous movies can be heard in the background. King Khan also has a large following on Facebook (25 million) and on Instagram (11.4 million). Shah Rukh Khan is currently working on Zero a film that will also feature Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
  25. Ajay Devgn is back in action with his upcoming crime drama 'Raid', and while some of us were beginning to have second thoughts about this movie; the makers dropped an amazing trailer packed with high-octane action and drama, which confirmed that it's going to be one of the most kickass movies of this year. The trailer gave us two things – one is the powerful line “Heroes don't always come in uniform” and the second is this hilarious line-up of memes and jokes that people made out of one dialogue of Saurabh Shukla. Panorama Studios Ajay Devgn plays an honest, no-nonsense Income Tax Officer, whose ultimate aim is to bring Saurabh Shukla's character's black money and corrupt ways, to the surface. While, both Ajay and Shukla were immersed in a fiery battle of words throughout the trailer, there was one dialogue that caught people's attention and how. Director Raj Kumar Gupta might have had different thoughts when he got Shukla to say “Andar toh aagaye…bahar kaise jaaoge?” (You managed to get in, but how will you go out?) But when you have some genius minds and Twitter at our disposal, how can one not think otherwise. And that's exactly what happened. Panorama Studios Twitter could only see 'fodder for memes' written on this intense scene and took no time to rewrite the scene with their hilarious imagination.
