Vijayawada: Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena party has a bigger presence on social media than other political outfits of Andhra Pradesh have.
Jana Sainiks are quite active on Twitter. However, the party got a shock from the micro-blogging site as it has banned about 300 accounts belonging to the party men.
The accounts were suspended for posting the content that is against Twitter’s guidelines. These accounts spammed Twitter with content that breached the social media etiquette.
The biggest jolt is the party’s popular account Shatagni has been lost. Shatagni account had become the almost official voice of Pawan Kalyan and Jana Sena. Losing this account is a huge blow to the party.
The party is now left with mere 100 accounts that have a good number of followers.
As per Twitter’s policy, if anyone tries to ‘influence conversations through the use of multiple accounts or fake accounts can attract a suspension.’
The party members say their voice was muted as they ran the #SaveNallamala campaign.
