Pakistani politician accidentally kitty cat filter during livestream
Here’s a tale of a fur-ocious goof. A politician in Pakistan who was streaming live on social media turned into a cute little kitty cat when someone on his social media team accidentally turned on a cartoonish filter.
Provincial information minister Yousuf Shaukat Zai showed up on the livestream with whiskers, cat ears and cat noses. Later, two of his colleagues did. Fur real.
It wasn’t exactly a political cat-astrophe. The furry-faced images were deleted quickly from the party’s official page, but screenshots were passed around on social media.
“According to KP government’s social media team we now have a cat in the cabinet,” wrote journalist Mansoor Ali Khan.

The party later tweeted out a statement that read in part, “Yesterday whilst covering a press briefing held by KP’s information minister Shaukat Yousafzai, a ‘cat filter’ was witnessed by the viewers which was removed within (a) few minutes.”
The goof was dubbed “human error” and the party statement said that “all necessary actions have been taken to avoid such incidents in future.”

Pakistan tehreek e insaf social media team is deemed to be the pioneers of social media in Pakistan. We not only price power cells in bringing Pakistani politics to internet but also feel content in setting high standards of SOPs#PTISMT
