Pakistani writer Fatima Bhutto says no one cares about your Wordle score. Twitter has an answer

Wordle has now captivated internet users from all over the world. It has become a kind of necessity for many, especially those who have an indescribable love for crosswords and scrabble. It’s quite a task to guess the correct word of the day in just six tries and people tend to show off their results on social media. However, a Pakistani author shared his annoyance about it.

Fatima Bhutto took to Twitter to share her take on the viral pun. “Nobody – I promise you: nobody – cares about your Wordle score,” she tweeted.

She also clarified that the game was quite enjoyable but the problematic part is sharing on social media.

“I love Wordle but what is this unbearable world of oversharing we’ve created! What’s next? How many glasses of water do you drink a day? How many of your 5 a day have you ate? Steps taken? Blood pressure readings? she added.


The tweet got a lot of attention and netizens didn’t hold back declaring their love for the game. While many pointed out that it wasn’t that bad, some agreed with Fatima.

Jemima Goldsmith, British screenwriter and ex-wife of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, also expressed her views on the matter.

The interesting game of Wordle asks the player to guess a five-letter word in six tries. There is only one Wordle per day. The rules are simple. If the player gets the letter that was part of the word, the tile turns yellow. If the player, however, guesses a letter that is in the word and the position is also correct, the tile turns green. If the player guesses anything else, the tile turns gray.
