New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday paid tributes to Swami Vivekananda on his 112th death anniversary, saying he was an “enduring source of inspiration” for the people across the globe.

“I bow to Swami Vivekananda on his Nirvan Diwas. He is an enduring source of inspiration whose thoughts influenced several people globally,” Modi wrote in his Twitter handle.

Swami Vivekananda, the founder of Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission, was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the western world.

He was also credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the 19th century.

He died on 4 July, 1902.

In its bid to deliver better experiences for its users, Twitter has removed support for some outdated key features tools in third-party apps.

In a blog post on Thursday, Twitter said it will remove access to application programme interfaces (APIs) needed to power push notifications and an auto-refreshing timeline.

“We’ve chosen to stop investing in other products a” including two legacy developer tools used by about 1 per cent of third-party developers. This means that some Twitter-like apps will not be able to function the exact same way as before,” said Rob Johnson, Director of Product at Twitter.
