Thinking of giving up social media accounts this Sunday: PM Modi
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday tweeted that he is thinking of giving up all his social media accounts this Sunday, but stopped short of providing any further details.
"This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted," he tweeted from his official handle.
When contacted, sources refused to divulge any details and said that future plan of action will be disclosed in the next few days.
Within minutes of the tweet, #NoSir started trending on the microblogging website.
The tweet led to a host of questions on social media. While many users wanted to know the reason behind the announcement, some wondered how he will keep them posted if he quits social media.
Prime Minister Modi is among the most popular and active global leaders on social media, with close to 53.3 million followers on Twitter.
He is also the world’s most followed or liked world leader on two other social media platforms — Facebook and Instagram.
In a list of 50 most followed active world leaders on Facebook, PM Modi tops the list as his official page is liked by over 44 million people, more than that of US President Donald Trump. On Instagram, PM Modi is followed by over 35 million people.
From his famous "Main bhi Chowkidar" campaign in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections last year to roping in celebrities and famous personalities to promote voting, PM Modi has actively used social media during his tenure.
从著名的“Main bhi Chowkidar”竞选活动到去年的人民院选举，再到通过拉拢名人来拉票，莫迪总理在任期间一直积极活跃在社交媒体上。

You need to also give up Prime Minister position as well.
Great idea. Atleast you will stop talking and start working after that.
He works for 18 hours in a day since last 6 years of power. He has no personal objectives. His brother is a labourer and mother living in a simple house. You tell when you will start working for the betterment of the society mr. converted fool.

Wonder what could have prompted such a decision by the PM. His presence on social media is inspiring and has a substantial following. Hope he changes his mind!

This will be a great move. More of us should quit social media. We have lived for ages without social media. Digital world is no good. Let's live in a real and better world.
