(Flight MH370) Tweet raises eyebrows
(04-03 16:59)

Malaysia’s Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has deleted an embarrassing tweet, which appeared to agree to a posting that said the missing plane tragedy was a “blessing in disguise,’’ a report said today.
Kuala Lumpur-based journalist Ismail Amsyar tweeted: “MH370 is a blessing in disguise for all of us. I understand now the beauty of unity, the sweetness of having each other.”
Six minutes later Hishammuddin Hussein shocked followers when he replied: “Right u are:)”
Followers frowned on its appropriateness and many suggested it was insulting to the families of passengers, the website news.com.au reported.
Amsyar has this morning apologized profusely “from the bottom of his heart” for his tweets. He also received an online death threat.
Hishammuddin has since deleted the comment from Twitter.
