Bilawal Bhutto vs PTI: Who is trolling whom?

The online feud saw Bilawal call Imran Khan a coward, only to be bashed by Asad Umar.

Web Desk October 15, 2013

The online feud between Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leaders and supporters had local Twitter users abuzz, as the battle quickly moved from exchanges about Malala to outright trolling.

The war of words began on October 12, when PTI leader Asad Umar tweeted a reply regarding the teen activist's desire to become Pakistan's prime minister one day.

Bilawal Bhutto, who was tagged in the earlier tweet, took the opportunity to criticise PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Not one to hold back, Asad Umar responded to the criticism.

What followed was an outpouring of rage by PTI followers on both Twitter and Facebook. Tweets about the online exchange went viral, and became Facebook memes.

The young Bhutto replied to a number of PTI supporters, but also managed to sneak in a few potshots at the Insaafians.

Last night, Bilawal signed off with a smile and hashtag directed at the PTI, some of whom have continued trolling him.
