Indian government ranks ministers on their Twitter performance

The Indian government has ranked its ministers on the basis of how quickly and efficiently they respond to people’s requests on Twitter. The survey, which was reportedly conducted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office, put foreign minister Sushma Swaraj in the top position.

The Top 5 Standings of the Survey:

Minister               Portfolio                            Rank

Modi is famous for his use of social media and has the third-highest number of Twitter followers in India, behind Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. Several ministers in his government have also been using Twitter as a tool of governance.

At the top is external affairs minister Sushma Swaja, who is also the most-followed foreign minister in the world, according to a 2015 study. She has been using Twitter to tackle diplomatic issues as well as individual cases, such as evacuating an Indian woman under house arrest in UAE, and rescuing stranded Indians in Yemen and Iraq.
