Dhaka: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said his two-day “historic” visit to Bangladesh will “strengthen ties” between the two countries.

In a tweet, Modi thanked Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the warm welcome.

“Thank you PM Sheikh Hasina for the warm welcome. I look forward to a very good visit that will strengthen ties between India and Bangladesh,” Modi tweeted.

Modi, who is on two-day visit to Bangladesh, arrived at Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in a special Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft, Rajdoot. He was received, in a break from protocol, by his Bangladeshi counterpart. He was accorded a ceremonial welcome, after which he inspected a guard of honour. Posting a picture when he was received by Hasina at the airport, Modi tweeted: “Protocol broken to welcome a friend… PM Hasina welcomes PM to Dhaka and a historic visit begins.”

In another tweet Modi said: “Hello Bangladesh. I bring with me the affection and goodwill of the people of India.”

While leaving for the neighbouring country, he said: “Leaving for Bangladesh. This visit is going to strengthen the bond between our Nations, benefiting people of our countries and our region.”

Modi also posted some of the tweets in Bengali.

After killing off apps used by a minority of its userbase including the “Twitter for Mac”, the micro-blogging site is shutting down its TV apps on Roku, Android TV and Xbox from May 24.

“On Thursday, May 24, Twitter for Roku, Twitter for Android TV and Twitter for Xbox will no longer be available. To get the full Twitter experience, visit https://twitter.com on your device or desktop,” the microblogging website tweeted.

This is due to the dismal feedback that users gave because these Twitter apps did not allow them to tweet from their account or fully interact with the Twittersphere in general, The Verge reported.

A report in Tech Crunch, however, said that Twitter has made the decision to kill off these apps as the micro-blogging platform works towards GDPR compliance.

“In addition, neither Xbox or Roku support a standard regularly supported video player, which made them more difficult to maintain. That also came into play with this decision,” the report said.

As compared to other TV apps like Netflix, Twitter lacked on the “exclusive video content” front as well.

Twitter for tvOS (Apple TV) and Twitter for Amazon Fire TV will continue to be available. (IANS)
