published on July 4, 2013

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has overtaken Congress MP Shashi Tharoor to become the most popular politician on micro-blogging website Twitter.

According to reports, Modi is now the most followed Indian politician on Twitter – 4,601 followers ahead of his nearest rival.

The recently appointed BJP poll campaign chief has 1,826,469 followers on Twitter while Tharoor retains second position with 1,821,868 followers.

BJP has claimed that Modi’s popularity on social media is an indication of his increasing popularity ahead of 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress, however, rubbished the claim saying that popularity on social media cannot be linked to elections.

BJP plans to use social media as a key tool in the elections and has put together an IT team in Bangalore to prepare database of voters on social media.
