An Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) follower on Twitter claimed to have rigged a Twitter poll started by C-Voter's Yashwant Deshmukh on Tuesday. 

Deshmukh ran a Twitter poll asking users to vote for who they trusted more — the Election Commission (EC) or the AAP — when it came to allegations of tampering of EVMs. The EC has always maintained that EVMs cannot be tampered with and are safe, while the AAP has consistently blamed the manipulation of EVMs for their loss in the recently-concluded assembly polls and MCD elections.

The follower claimed that he changed codes on the HTML page and fudged the results of the poll started by Deshmukh.

However, the funny part was that Deshmukh called out his bluff by saying that the results of the poll, which the follower claimed to have fudged, changed only on his machine and not for other Twitter users. The results of the poll are still the way they should be on Twitter.
