At present, J.Scindia Twitter profile bio is “Public servant, cricket enthusiast”
To begin with, Jyotiraditya Scindia never added “BJP” to his Twitter bio. Firstly, we went to an online tool that tracks Twitter profile changes named, Spoonbill.
J. Scindia had last changed his Twitter bio on November 17, 2019, while in Congress.
J. Scindia had significantly removed the designation of former MP and former Union minister to “Public servant, cricket enthusiast”. After the change on Nov 17, 2019, Scindia never changed his Twitter bio. He changed his profile picture when he joined the BJP in March 2020.
We also found an archive of Scindia’s Twitter profile saved on May 17, 2020, in the digital archive tool “Wayback Machine”, which proves that he did not change his bio even after joining BJP. The bio read the same, “Public servant, cricket enthusiast”
He also confirmed that he never added: “BJP” to his Twitter profile by retweeting a tweet that read, “श्री @JM_Scindia जी के बारे में मीडिया में चल रही खबरें पूरी तरह से निराधार है। सिंधिया जी ने अपने टि्वटर बायो में कोई चेंज नहीं किया है, पहले भी उनके बायो में क्रिकेट प्रेमी और जनसेवक ऐड था और आज भी वही है।” (translation: The ongoing news in the media about Mr @JM_Scindia is completely baseless. Scindia ji has not made any changes in his twitter bio, even before his bio was a cricket lover and public servant and it is the same today.”)
