What Modi's Twitter feed has looked like since he became Prime Minister

The past two years have been very eventful for our PM Modi. Like any other social media loyalist, he has given a window into his life with a dedicated Twitter feed. If you are ever interested to know about his whereabouts (stalkerish much?), then just visit his Twitter account, where he makes sure that his followers are always updated about his current whereabouts and activities.

Active on the platform since 2009, with 20.2 million followers, Narendra Modi is the most followed politician in India and the second-most followed politician in the world (after Barack Obama).

After he came to power in May 2014, Modi used the platform as a tool to connect with people and help propagate his campaigns like Swachh Bharat or Make in India. Through his celebrity status, he got other celebrities on Twitter to contribute to his campaigns and used the platform to share the (real or imagined) success of his campaigns.

His touristy tweets have always been a hit. From the beginning of his term he has consistently put up tweets about the time he spent in various countries and the landmarks he visited. But that said, if you are ever in need for information on what to do when you visit South Korea or China, Modiji shall come to the rescue. Just scroll through his Twitter account—

In the past few months, Modi’s account had been all about the Assembly elections 2016. On several occasions, his account assumed the tone of a political rally. While we saw glimpses of the old Modi who would gush if it was someone’s birthday or celebrate Chartered Accountants day, we almost missed his Swachh Bharat tweets. His campaigns took a backseat amidst the chaos of his foreign visits and rallies.

One thing that PM Modi cannot be accused of is tardiness. No matter whose birthday it is, Modi has always come up with a tweet to wish them. Sometimes even when it is not their birthday!

We wonder how PM Modi finds the time to manage a nation, lead political campaigns, travel the world, and come up with 140 characters to describe his life. Here's to three more years of microblogging Modi, mitron!
