Modi contemplates quitting social media

Sources say the Modi government decided to 'shock' the leftist mediums by depriving them of the business his presence generates for them


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, one of the most followed personalities on social networking sites, shocked the world today by tweeting that he was considering “giving up” his social media accounts.”This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted,” said the tweet posted at 8.56 PM.

Prime Minister Modi has more than 50 million followers on Twitter and his Facebook page has more than 44 million ‘likes’.

Sources in the government say that the dispensation tried a lot to make the management of Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc get over their leftist bias — only to be frustrated. It finally decided to “shock” these mediums by depriving them of the business they get from the sheer presence of Narendra Modi on these platforms.

Modi would not be the first statesman fighting biased platforms. Last year, White House did not invite Facebook and to a social media summit hosted by President Donald Trump for a conversation on the challenges of the environment. The two prominent social media companies were not extended invitations, CNN said.

CNN’s sources said they believed the summit was a right-wing grievance session, not aimed at discussing some of the issues facing large technology companies.

A year before that, President Trump had alleged was “shadow banning” and silencing conservative voices. And chief executive Jack Dorsey admitted his workers suffered from a “left-leaning” bias.

The Indian state under Narendra Modi has been at the receiving end not only of unsubstantiated, anti-Hindu reports in Indian as well as Western media about the amended citizenship but also of mediums like Facebook and where those opposing the left view are harassed with censorships and bans. The managements of these networks do not spare even verified handles if their views are right-of-centre.

Sirf News needs to recruit journalists in large numbers to increase the volume of its reports and articles to at least 100 a day, which will make us mainstream, which is necessary to challenge the anti-India discourse by established media houses. Besides there are monthly liabilities like the subscription fees of news agencies, the cost of a dedicated server, office maintenance, marketing expenses, etc. Donation is our only source of income.

दुःखद है कि सवाई माधोपुर में राज बाग के पास सर्वसमाज के श्मशान घाट जाने वाले रास्ते पर ताला लगा दिया गया है, जिससे अन्त्येष्टि संस्कार संपादन में लोगों को भारी कठिनाई हो रही है। @ashokgehlot51 सरकार इस मामले का तुरंत निस्तारण करे अन्यथा जनता के साथ बड़ा आंदोलन करूंगा।

Bangladesh have been bowled out for 330.
