This is what PM Modi suggested to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey
Twitter co-founder and chief executive Jack Dorsey, who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, said that PM Modi had a lot of suggestions for him which were focused on "looking more broadly at the world and helping us all realise that we are one planet, one humanity."
"I asked him some questions around how he thinks about things like artificial intelligence (AI) and cryptocurrency, for example, and we talked a lot about Twitter," Dorsey said, in an exclusive interview with CNBC-TV18.
PM Modi is among the most tech-savvy leaders across the world. In July, he was the world's third most followed leader on Twitter with 43.4 million followers. As of now, Modi has 44.4 million followers.
"I asked him why he uses it and how he found it and just what he has been experimenting with. He pointed me to his tweet on World Environment Day, for instance, as his big global movements that can be inspired, people can see that we are all in this together. So the discussion was awesome," Dorsey told CNBC-TV18.
Dorsey tweeted pictures from his meeting and said: "Thank you Prime Minister @narendramodi for having us today. I enjoyed our conversation about the importance of global conversation. Also: thanks for the ideas for Twitter!"
In response, Modi said: "Delighted to meet you @jack! Happy to see the passion with which you're leading @Twitter. I enjoy being on this medium, where I've made great friends and see everyday the creativity of people."
Apart from Twitter, Modi is active on Facebook and also communicates with the people through his radio show Mann Ki Baat.
Twitter, which counts India among its priority markets, has a large number of politicians in the country on its platform who engage with residents and extensively use it around elections.
