Twitter has been asked to remove the accounts of Tendulkars’ over the fact that a lot of fake accounts are active in the name

Twitter has been asked to remove the accounts of Tendulkars’ over the fact that a lot of fake accounts are active in the name of Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun and daughter Sara.

The master blaster took to the social media platform to express disappointment over the issue and to remind Twitter that he had earlier tweeted in 2014 over the issue of fake accounts.  Tendulkar tweeted, “I reiterate the fact that my children Arjun & Sara are not on twitter. We request @Twitter to remove all such accounts at the earliest.”

Emphasizing the concerns over impersonation, Tendulkar appealed to the all the social media platforms to adopt corrective measures to avoid impersonation. Tendulkar tweeted, “Impersonation wreaks havoc, creates misunderstanding & traumatises us. I appeal to the platforms to take corrective measures immediately.”

It is assumed that some impersonator has posted some fake picture of the cricketer’s teenaged children and of course, it did not go well with the doting father.

After Sachin Tendulkar expressed disappointment over the fact that fake accounts are active on Twitter in his son Arjun and daughter Sara’s name, Twitter presumably swung into action and the fake accounts existing under the two were suspended and remained inactive from Tuesday afternoon.

The matter had become a cause of concern after the fake account posted tweets criticizing NCP leader Sharad Pawar. This led to a lot of controversy on Twitter and ultimately led to Sachin’s comments.
