India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh joins Twitter

Source: Twitter

Amid all the scares happening in India with ministers threatening popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google with legal actions if they do not censor content that could hurt religious sentiments. The Prime Minister of India has joined Twitter. The reason given by his office being that he wants to reach out to younger people and especially the online generation. The work done by him and his office has been substantial and he would like to use Twitter to bring it to the notice of young Indians. The first three Tweets from his office has to be with the 'National Bravery Awards' and a picture of him sitting with the young bravehearts. The Prime Minister has been known to keep his silence on many a burning issue but we hope he will be able to open up more using the micro-blogging's 140 characters at a time. 

The Prime Minister's Twitter handle is @PMO which stands for prime minister's office. Indians on Twitter however have not lost an opportunity to poke fun at the account, saying it will mostly stay silent and 140 characters is too much. Others see this as a step forward and the PM now has over 8 thousand Twitter followers. You can expect this to grow over the coming days as more and more people are just finding out about it. Way to go Mr.PM.
