The ace in the space of social media, Twitter, today completes a decade since its inception. If rewound, from now, 10 years back, the twitters from social-media-nest ‘Twitter’ weren’t as striking as they are now. For, as the sands of time whizzed past, the tweets of twitter multiplied manifold. Today, there hardly lives any celebrity or politician unfamiliar to twitter. That influential was its expansion.
With a ginormous population of 1.2 billion, India has undeniably been a significant user of twitter. Below are the 5 give-aways of Twitter to India.
- There was one battle-ground of Kurukshetra and there is one verbal-ground of Twitter. Befuddled? Ha-Ha….. Well, 18 days long battle of Mahabharata is known to almost all. Twitter too has served itself as a virtual ground to tweet-war with each other. Eminent honchos like Kejriwal, Rahul Gandhi, Rishi Kapoor, Anupam Kher and many like them had used this platform to tongue-war.
- Twitter has helped finding missing lady. In a way, it took upon it shoulders what police force is supposed to do. Although not the entire credit holder is Twitter, but in a way, the trending #HelpFindDipti, the tweet by Snapdeal owner for its employee, did mete out a bit of aid in the missing-girl-search operation.
- Twitter, commendably, also played its role as a passport office with Sushma Swaraj as the office-runner. Countless pleas for passport troubles were resolved by Sushma using Twitter. Doesn’t that call for eulogizing Twitter? Indeed, yess.
Can you scratch your brains for anything else? Come on, come up with more.
