Here are the social media platforms Narendra Modi does not use, but should

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always been known to be tech savvy.

The PM has a profile on major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, GooglePlus and LinkedIn.

He also uses each social media platform differently. For example, he uses Twitter to post short messages and greetings for people, platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn to post long articles about India or the government and Instagram to post some very entertaining pictures like this one:

Had a very good interaction with people from tribal communities, belonging to Dahod in #Gujarat.

However, as unbelievable as it sounds, there are some social media platforms the Prime Minister does not use. It was the toughest task to find some social media platforms which do not have a Narendra Modi profile. But here they are, with bonus details of what the PM's profile would include if he did use them:

Reddit One of the major social media platforms that Modi does not use is Reddit, which is used to post user-generated news links. Since votes promote stories to the front page of the platform, we're pretty sure any thread started by Modi will make it to the front page. Maybe the prime minister could start a thread on what he should wear the next time he meets a world leader, considering the fact that he once wore a suit with his name written all over it.

Vine Even if Modi has never had a profile on Vine (the platform for posting looping videos), one of his gaffes has gone viral on the internet due to a Vine.

Yes, the prime minister was trolled by his teleprompter when he referred to 'Mrs Sirisena' — Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena's wife — as 'M-R-S. Sirisena'.

We really think he should create a profile on Vine, because it has the potential to be the most entertaining thing India has seen in a very long time.


Perhaps the best part about Snapchat is the fact that the photos and videos posted on it are temporary. And you find out if someone saves a screenshot.

There are a lot of pictures or videos that the prime minister may have wanted to share on a temporary basis, like these:
