Ahead of Mission UP, the Congress on Monday announced that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, general secretary of Uttar Pradesh East, has joined Twitter.

Making her maiden visit to India’s most populous state after joining active politics, Priyanka has infused a new-found energy in the party’s journey to the 2019 General Elections. Though the 47-year-old had campaigned for Congress in the past, she had only played second fiddle to Rahul until now.

Gaining 25,000 followers within an hour of joining the microblogging site, she has proven to hold quite the clout, at least as far as social media is concerned. Currently looking at 51.6K followers, the new Congress leader follows only seven people on Twitter — Brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi, party leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Ahmed Patel, Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot and INC’s official accounts. Priyanka is yet to post on the platform.

However, what cooked up quite a storm after she joined the platform is how quick Twitter was to make it a 'blue tick' verified account. Here’s what some Twitteratis had to say:


The top brass of Congress pulled up its socks early last year and began making its presence being felt on social media platforms to try and beat the ruling BJP in what is their A-game.
