New Delhi July 2014:  Following the push by PM Narendra Modi, asking all his Ministers and Ministries to join Twitter, two more union ministries debuted on the platform today.  The Ministry of Textiles and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will be tweeting from their handles @MoHFW_INDIA & @TexMinIndia.

 

Twitter has emerged as the platform of choice for the NDA Govt to communicate with the citizens of India with the PM leading the charge with his personal handle (@narendramodi), complimented by his office’s official handle (@PMOIndia), to share updates.

 

The Prime Minister’s cabinet is flocking to Twitter as well, with nearly 40 ministers and ministries already sharing daily updates with their followers about the goings on in their respective ministries.

 

The PM Narendra Modi had urged members of his cabinet to use social media for good and effective governance. Ministers of his cabinet have taken him up on this and post regular news updates to their twitter accounts. However, exactly how they use it for effective governance remains to be seen.
