Within 3 Weeks, White House Unfollows PM Modi

Within just three weeks, White House, the official residence and workplace of the POTUS (President Of The United States), has unfollowed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ramnath Kovind and the Indian Embassy in Washington and the US Embassy in New Delhi on Twitter.

Around April 10, the White House had followed the personal Twitter handles of PM Modi, his office (PMO) and President Ram Nath Kovind. With this, these were the only non-US Twitter handles followed by the White House. With this, White House was following 19 Twitter handles.

This was seen as development following India’s help to the US in the supply of Hydroxychloroquine tablets, the anti-Malaria drug, which is being used to fight Covid-19. Following US president Donald Trump’s request, India had reconsidered its decision over the ban on the export of the drug and lifted it partially and supplied the HCQs to the US.

However, within 3 weeks, the White House has unfollowed Modi, President Ramnath Kovind and PMO. Along with these handles, the White House has unfollowed the Indian Embassy in Washington and the US Embassy in New Delhi on Twitter.
