As if to mark his second anniversary in power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account (@NarendraModi) crossed 20 million followers. He has added three million new Twitter followers so far in 2016, and 16 million since he was sworn in on May 26, 2014.
Only Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) has more followers than him in India and at the pace the PM is adding followers, it is only a matter of time before he crosses the veteran actor who now has 20.9 million followers. He recently left behind Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) who has 19.5 million followers.
Modi is anyway the most followed Indian leader and the second most followed politician globally after US President Barack Obama (@barackobama) who has 75 million followers.
Here is the list of his top 10 Tweets as shared by Twitter. At the top of the list is his tweet when he won the Lok Sabha election in 2014.
