There are various social media platforms but Twitter's purpose has always been more than just sharing what's happening in your life – it is a platform where people come to see what’s happening and join in conversations on trending topics.
Like every year, in 2019, users in India talked about various things - from the #loksabhaelections2019 to #chandrayaan2 and #cwc19. Twitter has shared its annual report of 'Here's what's happened', and ISRO's Chandrayaan 2 was clearly the most exciting and momentous event for India.
Space is hard. We commend @ISRO’s attempt to land their #Chandrayaan2 mission on the Moon’s South Pole. You have inspired us with your journey and look forward to future opportunities to explore our solar system together. https://t.co/pKzzo9FDLL
