There have been various concerns voiced against the system, including privacy concerns and the data being used for surveillance of citizens.

People have been coping with the news in many ways, including making memes.


"I have had this account for years now and the spamming and attempts to hack increased only in the last week and a half or so. So, I had to tweet about it," Sharma told BuzzFeed.

While he didn't think it would get him as much attention that he did, he doesn't mind it much. "Now there's just a lot of pressure to be witty even though I have only 50 followers. My family is having a good laugh at my expense. So, it's just a joke now," he added.
