Prime Minister Office (PMO) has joined Twitter (@PMOIndia) and has attracted more than 12,000 followers within 5 hours of joining Twitter.
The account will be handled by Prime minister office and unlike @BarrackObama, Manmohan Singh’s account is mainly an organizational account and will hopefully be used for future PMs as well.
The key question however remains the same – Will Manmohan Singh break his silence and use Twitter for interacting with the ‘aam junta’ (general public)? Or is it just another outreach channel? Going by the quality of tweets that we see – looks like the latter (i.e. do not expect the Prime Minister to tweet).
In short, #fail.
