Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is on Twitter now. This is his first social networking profile.
Naveen, whose Twitter handle is @Naveen_Odisha, started off with “Jai Jagannath” as his first tweet.
There were many fake accounts in his name, but the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) confirmed that Naveen today indeed joined the popular social networking site.
BJD Party tweeted from their official handle @bjd_odisha: “Let’s welcome our beloved CM Shri Naveen Patnaik on @twitter. Please follow him on his personal id @Naveen_Odisha.”
Naveen already had 1189 followers, many of who requested him to remain active on Twitter. The BJD Supremo began by following 3 accounts – Biju Janata Dal, President of India and PMO India.
Naveen’s profile introduces him as the chief minister of Odisha since 2000, president of the Biju Janata Dal.
The profile picture shows a latest photograph of the chief minister smiling with folded hands while the display picture, a collage of three images, shows him interacting with tribal and physically challenged people in separate events and serving meals to schoolchildren in another occasion.
