Prime Minister Narendra Modi shocked his followers on Monday by hinting that he is planning to quit social media. While discussions on the reason for his cryptic tweet started, many of his 53.3 million followers on Twitter were worried. Several followers urged PM Modi to reconsider his decision, after which ‘No Sir’and ‘Please Don’t’ immediately started trending on the microblogging.
Users wrote how his followers will also quit the mediums if he quits since many were on it only for him. One felt the PM’s handle was the best way to know what is going on in the nation.
A netizen wrote how people will miss his ‘inspiring, educating n informative’ tweets. Another shared how they felt a ‘direct’ connect with the Prime Minister via his tweets, and him leaving them ‘alone’ won’t please them.
One very innocently and interestingly wrote that quitting the medium will make him susceptible to ‘manipulated facts from secondary sources’ and how it will disconnect him from the real sentiments of the nation.
