While the world watched with bated breath the unfolding tragedy in Nepal, a few on twitter started their own agenda. #SoulVultures turned the dialogue on the social media away from a humanitarian one to sheer communal bigotry.

The tag is being used against the religious conversion activities carried out by missionaries, under the garb of love, care and helping.

The twitter handle, belonging to a certain Matthew Armendarez, which was the first to tweet religiosity rather than relief and respite, has been deactivated.

Armendarez tweeted about how 99.5% of Nepal is untouched by Christianity and could not hear the Gospel before death.

Needless to say that the issue was magnified out of proportion due to its sentimental value and basic misunderstanding of expression. However, even the presence of such ideas during a community’s hour of need, betray a huge vacuum in humanitarian understanding and thinking beyond faith.

No ground evidence of any such activity is there to corroborate the social media outcry. However in all the humbug, a few tweets did display the potential of vested interests in behaving with perfect opportunist attitude, apathetic to the sentimentality and needs of people.

Most of the Twitter handles which tweeted so have been deactivated or turned private.

This is how Twitter reacted to #SoulVenultures

    Let Indians take special note of what the CHURCH WALLAS are up to. Attempt to convert at this time of crisis in Nepal is it because they want to establish people’s faith in “PARAMATHMA”? Let there be no miscalculation. They are focused on what is under the ground, in the forest, and in the rivers and streams of a given country as they have always been under the mask of spiritualism. These are the most dangerous vultures and agents of those who pretend to bring peace by dropping bombs on peoples head.

Twitter has announced that its new Account Activity API is now available to developers and its legacy services will retire on August 16 and not June 19 as earlier reported.

In April 2017, Twitter announced the Account Activity API (application programming interface) to help developers build solutions that enabled businesses to create better engagement experiences.

In December, the company announced the enterprise general availability.

“Today we’re excited to announce the Account Activity API is now generally available to all developers through our developer portal,” the micro-blogging platform said late on Wednesday.

With this, Twitter has replaced legacy services like Site Streams, User Streams and “REST Direct Message” endpoints.

“We did so as part of our efforts to improve the developer experience and provide a sustainable way to help businesses engage with those looking to connect with them,” Twitter said in a blog post.

“As we retire aging APIs, we have no plans to add these capabilities to Account Activity API or create a new streaming service for related use cases,” it added.

The Direct Message endpoints on the “REST API” have been replaced with more functional endpoints. (IANS)
