American journalist Megyn Kelly is being pummeled on social media over her meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in St Petersburg. Just one of the many reasons is her question to PM Modi, one of the world’s most followed politicians: “Are you on Twitter?”

Ms Kelly, who launched her new show with the interaction, has been accused by some of not doing her homework properly on PM Modi.

The awkward exchange took place before Ms Kelly recorded the meeting for her show at the Konstantin Palace. While she was greeting the two leaders, PM Modi said he had seen a post by the journalist with an umbrella.

Ms Kelly responded: “Oh really, did you? Are you on Twitter?” PM Modi appeared to smile and nod.

Online, the response among Indian users to the journalist’s absurd question has been brutal.

@megynkelly obviously hasn’t done her homework. Asking the 3rd most followed politician if he was on @twitter is ridiculous! @narendramodi
