20,000 followers for Official Twitter account of Prime Minister’s Office in 2 days

In just a couple of days after the announcement of Official Account of Indian Prime Minister’s Office, more than 20,000 Twitter users have started following it. Just like the official page of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Facebook, this twitter account will also give regular updates of Prime Minister’s speeches, programs,  photos, tours and other official news in real-time. This official account of PMO will be managed and updated by TV journalist Pankaj Pachauri who’s newly appointed Communications Adviser to the Prime Minister.

You can follow official PMO twitter account @PMOIndia. At the moment it’s just having 6 tweets and 4 photos with more than 20,000 followers which shows how popular this account is and that too within a couple of days. It seems like everyone was waiting for him on Twitter.

Let’s see how beneficial it will be for the media and for a normal person. You can check the current PMO updates on Facebook on this official page. What do you think about politicians joining social networking websites to interact with people? Is it of any use or not?
