New Delhi: With over six million followers in Twitter, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has become the second most followed Indian politician.

He crossed the six-million mark late Wednesday.

“And … @ArvindKejriwal crossed the 6 million mark on @twitter,” AAP’s social media chief Ankit Lal tweeted.

The Aam Aadmi Party chief trails Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has over 16 million followers on Twitter.

Both the leaders are widely known for utilising the power of social media.

Kejriwal, in his early days as a politician, used Twitter to garner support and donation from his followers and fans. He later started using it as a medium to connect with people.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is also among the most-followed Indian politicians on the microblogging world.

Micro-blogging site Twitter is testing a “subscibe to conversation” feature that would notify users everytime a tweet is added to the conversation in order to keep up with it, without actually becoming a part of the thread.

The prototype feature, that comes as a bell icon above conversation threads was spotted by reverse engineer Jane Manchun in the app’s Android version.

“This is part of our work to make Twitter more conversational,” the micro-blogging site said on Friday.

Lately, Twitter has been exploring new ways of protecting its users from hate, abusive content and fake news.

“Because of this ‘subscribe to conversation’ feature, users would not need to like or comment in a thread to receive updates and this could add a bit of anonymity,” Engadget reported.
