Despite the recent racial, religious and political tension that has been circulating the Malaysian online sphere recently, the Agong’s wife, Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, has been a constant source of joy and laughter to her Twitter followers through funny and cute posts on her @cheminahsayang account.
Unfortunately, the Raja Permaisuri Agong appears to have deactivated her account, yesterday (Sept 11).
Since then, Malaysians loyal to Tunku Azizah have launched a campaign to call the Permaisuri Agong back to Twitter.
As soon as netizens caught wind of her leaving the social media site, they quickly began sharing an #AmpunTuanku hashtag in a bid to convince Tunku Azizah to change her mind.
I’m coming from a state where we don’t have royals, but having them as our King & Queen is a true blessing. They represent the unity of this country, a symbol to unite us. Ampun Tuanku, I’m sorry you have to go through this #AmpunTuanku

“Where is mother?”
I too, found it odd at first, that our Queen would post so much and so regularly to Twitter. But I felt that she was just going with the times. Our lives are so public these days. So, why should royals be immune.
I hope that she decides to resume her postings.#AmpunTuanku

“Y’alls should know the proper etiquette in using social media”
The hashtag trended as #1 in Malaysia for most of today and has remained as one of the top 3 trends. Besides that, “Permaisuri Agong” has also been in the top 3 on the same list throughout today.
The deactivation of her account is believed to be a result of several negative tweets about the Raja Permaisuri Agong that were posted recently.
Do you think Tunku Azizah will eventually return to Twitter?
