As always on social media, especially on Twitter, no post is innocuous enough for the users to rip it apart by trolling.

NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) tweeted about a fascinating island which had emerged near the shore of western Pakistan following the 2013 earthquake. The island was created by a mud volcano following a devastating earthquake of the magnitude 7.7. The island is called Zalzala Koh which in Urdu is earthquake mountain.

The NASA website also informs that geologists had accurately said when the island was spotted that it would not last long. The island which was 20 metres high, 90 metres wide and 40 metres long was muddy and filled with silt. But gradually, as years passed by, very little of the land was left on Zalzala Koh.

While netizens did value the little piece of information, there were, of course, those, who had to troll the tweet by the Space agency.
