Birthday Special: Why Sushma Swaraj Is The Queen Of Twitter
There are very few women politicians with mass appeal in the country. India’s External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, is one of them. Working for the welfare of the country for decades now, Swaraj had entered the Indian Cabinet at a young age of 25. She also holds the record of becoming the first woman spokesperson of a national-level political party. Her popularity stems from the fact that she is a highly efficient and conscientious Indian leader committed towards helping the country flourish.
Her use of social media platforms to make governance more effective has been widely acknowledged. At present, she has around 7.25 million followers. This makes her one of the most followed female leaders. She recently launched “Twitter Seva” where she responds to citizens’ tweets as quickly as she can.
Apart from helping those in distress, she doesn’t shy away from showing her witty side on Twitter. On her 65th birthday today, let us have a look at some of her tweets, for which she is rightly called the “Queen of Twitter”.

If you or your wife were from my Ministry and such a request for transfer was made on twitter, I would have sent a suspension order by now. https://t.co/LImngQwFh6

4. By mocking media
Media – Pl avoid the headline : 'Sushma skips Oath Ceremony'.
— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) July 5, 2016
This was when the Cabinet reshuffle was taking place in July 2016 and she could not attend the event.
5. By proving her sensitivity towards people
@SushmaSwaraj are you real? Just checking. You don't meet requirement of being Indian politician. You are concerned about us(Indians).

Please do not have such notions. Indian politicians are sensitive and very helpful. https://t.co/9U0Rdxvn8q
