After returning from his overseas trip, Mr. Rahul Gandhi, 47 yr old, young leader of Congress, who is said to be the future President of Congress has been quite active on Social Media. It is quite clear that after facing a series of loss in almost all the elections against BJP led by PM Narendra Modi, the Congress and its leadership has realised the importance of social media. The opposition led by Rahul Gandhi and other allies, who had made fun of social media and its impact in the elections and over the mindset of the general public, are hiring and spending hefty budgets on their social media campaigns.
Today, it is observed congress and its leaders has been involved in creating or buying fake followers/handle/Accounts. One such instance, is observed today, when Rahul Gandhi have made a tweet on Jay Shah “ मित्रों, शाह-जादे के बारे में ना बोलूंगा, ना बोलने दूंगा ”.

This Tweet from Rahul Gandhi’s official twitter handle @OfficeOfRG has received over 2900 Retweets and 5200 Likes over twitter till now. But when anyone opens up the list of Retweets and likes, its shocking!
You will find almost all the accounts are protected. How is it possible that out of the all the twitter handles, almost 99% are protected. Somehow, it takes us to the observation that the social media team of congress doing everything to promote its youth leader Rahul Gandhi on social media through protected accounts/fake accounts. After, contacting some social media experts, we got it clear that it happens only when accounts and handles are fake.
