Aditya Thackeray removes ‘Minister’ ‘Maharashtra government from his bio
To verify if the claim is true, Newschecker looked up the archive versions of the twitter page of Aditya Thackeray. We found several archival versions of the twitter page, latest of which was done today.
On checking the archive versions of the twitter page from June 13, April 28, April 5, March 11, February 17 and January 16, we did not find the words ‘Minister’ or ‘Maharashtra government’ in his twitter bio. Newschecker also verified the data using Spoonbill that confirmed that Aditya Thackeray had not changed his twitter bio since 2017.
We further looked up the Instagram handle of Aditya Thackeray which still mentions ‘Minister of Tourism, Environment and Protocol, Government of Maharashtra’. It would be unlikely that the designation is removed from one social media handle and retained in another one.
Hence we conclude that the viral claim that Aditya Thackeray removed ‘Minister’ and ‘Maharashtra government’ from his twitter bio is false.
