The Curious Case of Tweet Button

KATHMANDU: The official Twitter handle of the Government of Pakistan today posted quite an interesting but a familiar Tweet - that the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will leave for Nepal today on a two-day visit.

However, neither the officials nor the media were aware about any details on the said official visit, which should have otherwise created quite a buzz in advance.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will leave for #Nepal today on a two-day visit. Prime Minister's visit will further expand and strengthen bilateral relations in all areas of mutual interest including trade, education, tourism, defense and people to people contacts.

The Pakistan Prime Minister had visited Nepal in March this year, becoming the first foreign head of government to visit Nepal after the induction of KP Sharma Oli as the 38th Prime Minister.

Seems like a case of 'Mistweet'. However, the tweet posted at 1:40 pm, which remained as it is for around three hours, has now been removed.
