Ever since being appointed as the general secretary of the Congress party, Priyanka Gandhi has been actively campaigning and participating in party activities. But that's not all, being accessible is more important.
These days politicians are using social media, especially Twitter to reach out to the common man. Now it's the turn of 47 year old Priyanka who recently stepped into full-time politics. The Congress official Twitter handle has announced Priyanka joining Twitter and within an hour, she received 25K followers.
Congress is well behind in the social media race when compared to the BJP. However, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had sensed this and is focusing a lot on it. A special team was appointed to deal with social media and important leaders were also asked to join Twitter.
Anyway, in a day or two, Priyanka's following might expand to half-a-million.
