ISLAMABAD - The Government of Pakistan’s official twitter account has earned embarrassment for PTI government.
Pakistan government official twittet account on Friday tweeted out a quote falsely attributed to Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
The official government twitter account tweeted a picture that read “If you are born poor it is not your mistake but if you die poor its your mistake – Bill Gates.” The tweet was quickly taken down by the twitter account but users managed to save screenshots of the gaffe.
Other than the incorrect language and grammar of the ‘quote’ and its false attribution to Bill Gates, many people also noticed how it seemed to be ignorant of the plight of the poor and the many barriers to entry they face in the attempt to improve their lives.
Dr Saleem, a developmental economist, pointed this out in a series of tweets in response to the government’s twitter account.
