As the nominations closed on Wednesday in Delhi, the Twitterati hit the overdrive with creative, satirical and aggressive hashtags.

The hashtag battle intensified with the joining of Kiran Bedi into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Those who favoured her decision floated the hashtags like #CheckmateAAP, while those who did not like her joining politics came up with #KiranBediUTurn, among others.
In fact AAP leaders and supporters slammed Bedi over her decision by posting screen grab her earlier tweets which were anti BJP and anti Modi. It was further intensified when former AAP leader Shazia Ilmi joined BJP
Interestingly, in this battle, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a step ahead of the BJP. AAP members and supporters are posting rally picture, TV and print news on social media. BJP too is thriving but facing stiff competition with AAP.
