Congress MP Shashi Tharoor is known for his bizarre use of vocabulary on Twitter. Often his followers are left scratching their heads with his extensive use of words in a tweet. The long list of words includes lalochezia, farrago, webaqoof and snollygoster, among others.
Recently Shashi Tharoor shared pictures from his trip to the Maldives and the caption is what created fuss among the netizens.
“A couple of weeks ago, before all the political kerfuffle in the media, I managed a brief three-day escape to @SonevaFushi in the Maldives,” he wrote, sharing four pictures from his getaway. “Feels like aeons ago now but I’ve never been on a more perfect getaway,” he added.

Several users turned their focus on the “kerfuffle” that the Congress leader used in his tweet. The word means ‘commotion or fuss, especially caused by conflicting views.”
While many Twitter users pointed out how the 63-year-old leader often used words that many wouldn’t understand, a few others took it upon themselves to educate fellow users by posting the meaning of kerfuffle.
Shashi, try to use simple English so that common people can understand. The communication in HiFi English will not yield the results intended for. For most of your speeches or messages people have one question “ Kahana kya chahate ho”
