Various conversations initiated by PM Modi took Twitteerati by storm like the implementation of GST, demonetization drive, an arrest of Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Triple Talaq, etc.
The head of Twitter India Taranjeet Singh clearly remarked that Modi Ji was in an uptrend since last year. Taking the conversation further, Prime Minister Narendra Modi garnered a rise in followers by 51%, thus giving us the opinion that Narendra Modi’s fan following is hard to shake.
The numbers speak for itself
Garnering the title of the most followed Indian on Twitter, the current Prime Minister has attained more than 3.75 crore followers. The implementation of GST and PM Modi’s tete-e-tete conversation Mann Ki Baat gained a lot of traction among the followers. Here’s a sneak peek at the same:-
Not only Twitter, Narendra Modi also rules Instagram. The financial express has confirmed that PM Modi has outvoted Donald Trump with respect to fan following. Currently the prime minister of India has 10 million followers in its kitty on Instagram. With these numbers, we can clearly say that the prime minister of India dominates various social networking spaces.
A Sneak Peek on achievements of PM Modi
Since he took over the reins of the Indian government, PM Modi has taken various concrete steps to develop the Indian economy. Starting from building a bi-lateral relationship with other countries to taking off the hoarded money from the black marketers to the amendment in the existing electricity act to an elimination of monopoly in various sectors to subsidies for farmers to improve efficiency to Saubhagya scheme to launch of bullet trains to launch of mandatory Aadhaar scheme to an emphasis on digitization to hidden benefits of GST, it seems Narendra Modi has done enough to score over his competitors. So, what do you think is it because of his achievements that he has become the most tweeted hashtag or there is some other reason behind it?
So, is this a real rise in PM Modi’s fan club?
While everyone bows down to his landmark achievements, but we are skeptic about the numbers! His demonetization drive has squandered a lot of controversies and Rahul Gandhi has taken the toll of it. Targeting him for unemployment and poor wages despite the launch of 7th Pay Commission recommendation, Rahul Gandhi has questioned about Modi’s unfulfilled promises and accused him for hiking fees of the educational institutes. Amidst this, the numbers have been disclosed primarily before the Gujarat election thereby giving hype to his achievements.
Recently, a twitter audit was conducted that revealed that PM’s Modi personal account has more than 22,003,269 suspicious accounts following him as compared to Rahul Gandhi, whose audit score stands at 51%. So, this throws up the some questions.. are these automated bots retweeting the mass tweets or is this the result of fake followers that Modi has become a trend? Though Rahul Gandhi has lost all the major state polls but his desi avatar has made him an eye candy among the opposition party and leaders. His shoot and scout policy is definitely gaining an online appeal and will give him a thumping victory soon if he (Narendra Modi) doesn’t live upto his promises. What do you think?
