The former president's official Twitter handle is @CitiznMukherjee.
Her outburst came soon after rumours about her joining the BJP cropped up ahead of Mukherjee's visit to Nagpur.
She dismissed such "rumours" of her joining the BJP as "false" and alleged they were the handiwork of BJP's "dirty tricks department". She said she would rather leave politics than quit the Congress.
