In a span of two months, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account got an additional million followers, taking the total count to 16.1 million. This feat comes after the PM crosses the 15-million followers mark earlier this year since he was sworn into office on May 26 last year.

Modi has been active on Twitter since 2009, and is the most followed Indian politician, and the second most followed politician in the world, after US President Barack Obama (@barackobama) with 66.1 million followers.

The PM has also set a new record for the largest increase in the number of followers in a 12-month period for an Indian account (8.8 million followers from Sep 17, 2014 to Sep 17, 2015).

These are some tweets that took him to this milestone.
