When you throw the battleground open, what happens? With the year coming to an end, we're reminiscing over the Twitter feud that broke out throughout this eventful year.

Well, this is what-only, here Twitter is the ground, our motley celebs/politicians the soldiers and ego the prize.

So, as we got cozier with Twitter this year, the shift of love also brought with it showdowns, catfights, ego bruises and what not. We bring you our pick of the best virtual wars from the year:

Here are few Twitter wars in 2021:

1. Swamy vs Bagga: Twitter war between Subramanian Swamy and Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga escalated into legal action. Delhi BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga sent a defamation notice to BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy over allegations Swamy had made against him. The notice was sent after Swamy had alleged on Twitter that Bagga was jailed many times for petty crimes before he had joined BJP.

2. Ravichandran Ashwin vs Eoin Morgan: The senior Delhi Capitals and India off-spinner found himself mired in yet another unsavoury on-field incident after getting into an argument with Kolkata Knight Riders’ Eoin Morgan and Tim Southee in Match 41 of Indian Premier League 2021, an incident that has once again brought the spotlight on the laws of the sport and the so-called ‘Spirit of Cricket’.

3. Zomato Hindi language row: Food delivery platform and restaurant aggregator Zomato on Tuesday landed in a controversy after a customer care agent of the company said "everyone should know Hindi a little bit" and adding that it is "our national language."


4. Karnataka BJP Vs Congress: The BJP and Congress have recently found themselves embroiled in a war of words in Karnataka, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi becoming the focus of their ire. Karnataka BJP chief Nalin Kumar Kateel accused Gandhi of being a "drug addict and drug peddler".

5. Kangana Ranaut vs Diljit Dosanjh:

The year 2021 started with Rihanna supporting the farmer’s protest in India. As soon as her tweet went viral, Diljit Dosanjh released a song, Riri, and dedicated it to the singer. Reacting to the song, Kangana accused Diljit of trying to make money from the situation. Her tweet led to a war of words between the two.

Kangana wrote, "Isko bhi apne 2 rupees banane hain, yeh sab kabse plan ho raha hai ? One month toh minimum lagega to prep for video and announcement, and libru want us to believe it’s all organic ha ha #Indiatogether #IndiaAgainstPropoganda (He also wants to make some money. Since when were you planning this? It would have taken at least one month to prepare for the video and the announcement) (sic)."
