After Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi Faces Fake Bot Followers Charge On Twitter
Oct 23, 2017, 04:01
Media reports on Saturday suggested that one of the reasons behind Rahul Gandhi's increase in Twitter following over the last few months could be automated bots mass retweeting Gandhi's tweets.
The Congress could finalise the election schedule to elevate Rahul Gandhi as the party president in the coming week. "#RahulWaveInKazak", tweeted information and broadcasting minister Smriti Irani. As per the report, the tweet quickly reached 20,000 retweets and now has touched 30,000. About 3.83 million accounts follow Rahul's @OfficeOfRG handle.
On October 15th, "OfficeofRG" retweeted US President Donald Trump's post praising American-Pakistani relations with a caption "Modi ji quick, looks like President Trump needs another hug".
The report states, "Further scrutiny of these Twitter accounts showed that the follower list was usually under 10 users and retweets comprised of random topics from across the world and those of Rahul Gandhi".
Gandhi tweeted to say: "If you are hungry, be patient!"
While Gandhi's tweet also had a pun on demonetisation, an exercise vehemently opposed by the Congress and many other Opposition parties he, however, found support from leaders like former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah, who tweeted, "If I was Rahul Gandhi I'd be rubbing my hands with glee.The planted stories, the coordinated attack all highlight how anxious he has the BJP".

According to his sister, Alicia Waskoski said, "great friend, a great family member and a really great father". Another aunt, Nancy Vizcarra said he was kind and protective of his younger brother and the family as a whole.
Divya Spandana, who heads the Congress's social media and digital communications wing, scoffed at the allegations.
Just hours after the report was published, Rajeev Chandrashekhar, a BJP MP, suggested that the Congress was taking "desperate measures".
Divyaspandana responded to Smriti Iran saying, "Why do we need them when we have you?"
"They (the BJP) are afraid of Rahul Gandhi and his popularity", he told TV channels.
The article shared by Irani has raised questions on Congress vice-president's Twitter followers. "The real issue is why is every minister jumping on Rahul Gandhi but silent on the questions that he is raising... they are not about Russian Federation or Kazhakhstan but about the issues faced by every Indian". Can understand your eagerness to please the I&B ministry and the Bots Janata Party.
