Hours after popular TV anchor Anasuya appeared in news for allegedly trashing the mobile of a kid in Tarnaka area of Hyderabad, her Twitter account appeared to have been deactivated. Her followers and Twitter users who are trying to search her handle ‘@anusuyakhasba’ are being directed to a screen with message: ‘Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!’
Although Anasuya did not give out any reason for her exit from Twitter, it will be a big relief from insulators, detractors and social media attackers. Earlier on Tuesday, the popular TV anchor snatched the phone of a kid who tried to click a selfie with her and thrashed it against the floor. Mother of the kid elucidated that episode in a video that is viral on social media and lodged a complaint with police.
Not just Twitter, Anasuya has completely exited from social media- Facebook and Instagram as well. This is being seen as a move to escape criticism from netizens & further attenuate the focus of social-media and bring her back under the radar. But, her absence on social media will make Anasuya inaccessible to her fans.
