Dear people of the Internet, you ought to know by now that Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj has snappier comebacks than you could ever hope to have. Those of you still learning, know that her response is going to be smart and dignified – much more than this man’s poor attempt at trolling her.
Someone on Twitter thought it wise to pay the foreign minister a ‘sarcastic’ (his word, not ours) and back-handed compliment. Ms Swaraj wasn’t having any of it and rightly so.
@SushmaSwaraj are you real? Just checking. You don't meet requirement of being Indian politician. You are concerned about us(Indians).

Ms Swaraj responded because she never ignores anybody who tweets her, and the answering post was framed in her usual calm and composed manner.
Please do not have such notions. Indian politicians are sensitive and very helpful. https://t.co/9U0Rdxvn8q
