BJP’s official Twitter handle clarified the confusion and informed about a change in CM’s Twitter account. Adityanth’s suspended Twitter handle had around 2.39 lakh followers, but followed only 33 people. The account was verified soon after Adityanath took oath on Sunday, March 19. Informing about the development, The BJP tweeted: “Please take note of the change in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mahant Yogi Adityanath’s Twitter account: @myogiadityanath. [sic]” The deleted account, surprisingly, was being tagged not only news outlets but also by politicians and official BJP twitter handle.
