When National Broadcasting Company (NBC)'s Megyn Kelly on Thursday asked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he was on Twitter, little did she know that her question would make her the target of attacks on the microblogging site.
Modi ranks third with 30.3 million followers in terms of the most followed world leaders on Twitter, after former US president Barack Obama and current US President Donald Trump.
This is why some Indians are now upset with Kelly.

The events unfloded when Modi praised Kelly for her picture on Twitter where she is posing with an umbrella. A surprised Kelly asked the Prime Minister "Are you on Twitter?"
Modi laughed off her question.
