    Tharoor was in the lead all these days with 6.7 million followers. Tharoor who was quoted in a TOI report said, "with pleasure. It is only fitting. And as one who has been urging him for years to be on Twitter and to be himself there, I feel a certain sense of vindication."

    While this is a small milestone for Rahul Gandhi, he still has a very long way to go before catching up to Prime Minister, Narendra Modi who has 42.3 million followers. Rahul reported a growth of nearly one million in two months. His followers went up from 24.93 lakh in July to 32 lakh by September.
