Shashi Tharoor is back at it again. He’s a part time Congress MP and full time human Oxford Dictionary on Twitter. He has a long history of teaching people new complicated words and phrases (Exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations & outright lies, anyone?)

Earlier today, he took it to Twitter to talk about his new book. “My new book, THE PARADOXICAL PRIME MINISTER, is more than just 400-page exercise in floccinaucinihilipilification. Pre-order to find out why,” he tweeted.

At first glance, it might look like Shashi Tharoor accidentally thew his hands at the keyboard and pulled a covfefe, but no, floccinaucinihilipilification is actually one of the longest English words which means “the action or habit of estimating something as worthless.”

His latest word to the collection has left people cluelessly looking it up on the internet. Here’s what people are saying.








Here’s a shout-out to Shashi Tharoor for improving our vocabulary one tweet at a time.
