New Delhi: It seems social media is too impressed with PM Narendra Modi as he has been rated as the world's second-most followed politician on Twitter after Barack Obama.

After being appointed as the Prime Minister of the country, he has added more than 2 million followers in the first 100 days of his government on Twitter, an official blog on the micro-blogging website said.

He uses both his personal Twitter handle (@narendramodi) and official account of the Prime Minister’s Office (@PMOIndia) to connect with the people.

“His Twitter account (@narendramodi) has crossed the 6 million follower mark since his election win, while the official account of the Prime Minister’s Office (@PMOIndia) has grown more than 40% since his swearing-in ceremony,” the blog added.

Also, Narendra Modi has the fastest growing Facebook page for any elected official in the world and is only second to US President Barack Obama, who has over 40 million fan following on Facebook.
