Netizens took no time to troll Indian author Chetan Bhagat for being honoured at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) as the chief guest at an event and couldn’t believe that he had been chosen to address them.

“Really honoured to be the Chief Guest at ISRO for the recent celebrations of the World Space Week. I can’t believe one of India’s finest organisations chose me to address them. Truly a big moment of my life – my own moon landing! #isro #chetanbhagat #worldspaceweek,” Chetan Bhagat wrote in a post on Monday.

“With losing all communication with Chandrayan-2 Lander Vikram, looks like ISRO has also lost its sense inviting this joker as a Chief Guest. Even he can’t believe it,” wrote another user.

Twitteratis wondered why he did not get such honour to be at the prestigious ISRO.

“Chandrayan failure was just a small setback for ISRO. But inviting you as cheif guest has me worried a lot more about the future direction of the organisation,” mentioned another.

“Chetu Bhai, why don’t you go to Moon or Mars? ISRO should run a pilot program with you. There are lots of readers for your novels,” a user added.

Twitter is considering a feature that would allow users to tip one another – in Bitcoins though.

The Information reports that the micro-blogging platform is working on implementing a new payment feature to let people send money to each other.

It is not yet clear whether the Twitter tipping feature would integrate with Jack Dorsey’s other company, Square, which is a financial services, merchant services aggregator, and mobile payment company based in San Francisco.

Dorsey has made absolutely no secret of his love of Bitcoin over the years.

NewsBTC has reported on the Twitter CEO opining that Bitcoin will one day be the currency of the internet and his company Square integrating cryptocurrency payments.

“Dorsey has been a major investor in the Bitcoin micropayments solution Lightning Network,” said the report.

Dorsey will move to Africa for three-six months this year to “define the future”.

“Sad to be leaving the continent for now. Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!). Not sure where yet, but I’ll be living here for 3-6 months mid-2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part,” said the Twitter CEO.
