Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has been reluctant to join social media, particularly Twitter. Apparently, people close to him were apprehensive of trolling.

However, in signs of change, his office opened a Twitter account on Tuesday night. Ever since his return from a nearly two-month sabbatical, Rahul himself looks a changed man. While @OfficeOfRG has just tweeted twice, it has already managed to cross more than 17,000 followers.

Among the followers include couple of Congress leaders like AICC secretary Suraj Hegde, Priyanka Chaturvedi, NSUI president Roji John and Tamil Nadu Congress chief E V K S Elangovan. Those close to Rahul say he is also thinking about joining Twitter. For the time being, his office plans to tweet his activities, speeches and details of public programs.

On Thursday, his office tweeted that Rahul will embark on a 15 kilometre padyatra in Telangana’s Adilabad district.
