The rumours were spread all around today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account had been hacked, until the last tweet of a series in Japanese came out saying thanks of “friends from Japan” who had helped him with translations.
The tweets came ahead of PM’s visit to Japan that is scheduled from Saturday. Mukesh Ambani and Azim Premji, the business tycoons of India, will accompany Mr Modi on this four day tour.
Meanwhile, in his unique sense, PM Modi today tried to win the hearts of the people of Japan in a series of eight tweets in Japanese language.
A tweet in Japanese said, “The precision and scale of innovation of the Japanese deserves praise. India and Japan can learn a lot from each other”.
Mr Modi has 6 million followers on his social networking site.
At the last, he tweeted in English, “Friends from Japan asked me to talk to the people of Japan directly in Japanese. I also thank them for helping with the translation.”
This official tour to Japan is the first major strategic tour of PM Modi. A nuclear pact and many business relations are expected to form in this tour between the two important Asian nations.
