Twitterati explodes after US publication calls Pulwama bombing an 'explosion'
Media house rectifies another error and posts a fresh tweet but retains the 'explosion' word that invites ire of Twitterati
A prominent US publication was trolled by Twitterati for a tweet pertaining to a story about Lok Sabha elections this year. The name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was erroneously spelt as 'Narandra' which the media house rectified by reposting with the correct spelling but the tweet talked about the Pulwama attack being an 'explosion' that led to trolling.
The newspaper's tweet said, "After an explosion in Kashmir and weeks of brinkmanship with Pakistan, many Indians are rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi as elections approach [corrects typo]."

The word 'explosion' took a sarcastic turn for some Twitterati with replies such as, "So 9/11 was a plane crash?"
Troubling that @nytimes chooses to describe a terrorist suicide attack as ‘an explosion.’ What’s next? Describing a beheading as ‘loss of a human head?’ @gettleman @nytimesworld https://t.co/1qolfH4KAy— Husain Haqqani (@husainhaqqani) March 12, 2019
If Pulwama Attack is just an explosion then 9/11 is just accident made by drunk pilot.— BHARATH KN (@BharathRF) March 12, 2019
If the incident in Pulwama was just an explosion, then 9/11 was a plane crash. My condolences to the Al-Qaeda workers who lost their precious lives just because of a stupid building.— Sanjay Gautam (@Sanjayg551) March 11, 2019
if pulwama was an explosion, 9/11 was a plane crash? it's very insensitive of NYT to make light of the losses we suffer from islamic terrorism!— vivek singh (@vivekbabaji) March 11, 2019
Pakistan's terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama which took the lives of as many as 40 CRPF soldiers.
