Modi`s fan-following on Twitter touches 1 million

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi now has one million `followers` on Twitter.



Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi now has one million `followers` on Twitter.
About a year ago, in November 2011, Modi had four lakh followers. He added six lakh followers since then, to touch the million mark on Tuesday.

Thanking his followers, the Internet-savvy Gujarat chief minister tweeted today: "A million followers! These are not mere numbers but it signifies your love and affection. Heartfelt thanks to you all."

BJP`s media adviser Jagdish Bhavsar said that "Modi`s development agenda is being endorsed across the country and world-over. And that is showing in his fan following."

Modi started using Twitter in 2009. In 2010, he had one lakh followers. He also has a blog, and updates it regularly.

He often uses the two social platforms, Twitter and blog, to make political statements.

This September, he started a state-wide `Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra`, a campaign tour, seeking a third term in Gujarat, which is going to elections on December 13 and 17.
