But even with a staggering figure of 15.1 million followers on Twitter, Modi is far behind the current US President and dear friend Barak Obama when it comes to Twitter popularity as Obama currently has more than four times his followers with 64.2 million followers on Twitter and 44,613,473 likes on Facebook.
