Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi
“I am a firm believer in the power of technology and social media to communicate with people across the world,” India’s new Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote in his inaugural message on his new website. Within weeks of his election in May 2014, the @NarendraModi account has moved into the top three most followed Twitter accounts of world leaders. The account was one of the major communication channels during the 2014 election campaign. It is very active with an average of six tweets per day. His entire political campaign was amplified by his social media team with hourly updates from the campaign trail. Here is an interesting animation of Modi’s campaign trail produced by @TwitterData. Since becoming prime minister he has made diplomatic overtures on Twitter to a number of foreign leaders and he is mutually connected with Japan’s Prime Minister @AbeShinzo and Bhutan’s Prime Minister @TsheringTobgay.
