Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s followers on microblogging site twitter have crossed the 64 lakh mark on his 64th birthday.
The last few weeks saw Modi’s twitter account @narendramodi add a significant number of followers. From 61.1 lakh on September 3 to 64.1 lakh on September 17, 300,000 followers were added in a fortnight.
Modi has been actively using the micro-blogging site to connect with people for sometime now, and especially during the run up to the last Lok Sabha elections.
Twitter had said earlier that there were nearly 60 million election-related tweets during the Lok Sabha elections this year.
The Prime Minister’s birthday, which began with him visiting his mother Hiraba in Gandhinagar, would end in a dinner with the Chinese President Xi Jinping. Earlier this morning, Modi met his mother to seek her blessings.
