It was just a matter of time before prime minister Narendra Modi created an Instagram account. With an active presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn already, Tinder is possibly the only major social media platform Modi hasn’t yet conquered.
Perfectly timed at the start of his 11-day foreign tour, the tech-savvy Indian prime minister made the big announcement on Twitter:
Now, he has decided to give Instagram a shot. His account already has more than 58,000 followers (and counting).
Modi’s first post on the photo-sharing channel came from the 25th ASEAN Summit, Myanmar—the first stop on his tour before he takes off for Australia and Fiji.
In an impressively meta post, he then followed up on Twitter, posting a picture of himself taking his first Instagram picture.
