Twitter just savaged UP Tourism’s Twitter account for trying to show off their English proficiency!

The life of a social media strategist is terrible. You have to try and sell a product on a platform that usually consists of people mocking each other or abusing each other. And if you make a single mistake, the entire world is waiting to pounce. Well, the people who run the UP tourism account are currently feeling the heat as they tried to sell Varanasi to English speakers, based in Victorian England from the tone of the language.

The Twitter account posted: “The unbeaten sagacious astuteness of #Varanasi is no less than a figurine of rectitude for the people.” To top it up, the copy on the picture of the tweet added: “#ReasonsToUp Seizure the quietude engraved in the transcendent aura of Varanasi.”

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
