IT minister KTR says government has created a social media cell to reach out to people in a better way
People in urban cities 'tweet' more than 'vote'. They just resolve to armchair criticism and they don't go to vote.
Public Relations Council of India (PRCI), Hyderabad Chapter, organised a panel discussion on ‘Social Media in Today's World’ on Saturday at Hotel Manohar.
Addressing the PR fraternity, IT Minister KT Rama Rao said, “As politicians we deal with two different forms of media—print and electronic. Now we have third menace which is a social media. We have been continuously haunted by social media. It is really challenging for politicians to deal with all these three different formats of media.”
“Our Chief Minister and my father KCR was more misunderstood than understood by the electronic media during the days of agitation. They only showed what they wanted in just thirty seconds and rest of the speech went for a toss. Social media has created another layer, but, it is very impactful. Twitter is very addictive. Our Prime Minister Modi is an avid and active tweeter. Social media offers a forum through which we can reach out to people without any filter,” KTR added.
Speaking about social media in today's world, he said, “People in urban cities 'tweet' more than 'vote'. They just resolve to armchair criticism and they don't go to vote. What matters is those who go and vote. Government of Telangana is proactive to social media.
The government has created a social media cell. Our ministry has now Facebook and Twitter Accounts. Our government will also have digital platform-CMO Telangana to reach out to people.”
