West Bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee joined the homegrown social media platform, Koo, on Monday.

The mercurial Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo, who has 7 million followers on Twitter and 4.9 million followers on Facebook, received a whopping 28.6K followers on day one itself.

CM Banerjee herself follows just four people, including the party general secretary and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee. Her first koo has so far received 172 likes, 27 rekoos, and 43 comments.

“Her handle is @Mamtaofficial on Koo. In her first Koo, CM Banerjee announced the milestone of 50 lakh rural households having access to clean potable water through tap connections. She congratulated everyone involved in achieving this,” a statement issued by Koo said.

CM Banerjee’s first Koo was about the news that 50 lakh rural households in Bengal now have access to clean potable water.

“GoWB is dedicated to serving people & ensuring their holistic welfare. I’m delighted to announce that more than 50 lakh rural households in Bengal now have access to clean potable water through tap water connections. Congratulations to all involved in achieving this milestone!” CM Banerjee posted.

Meanwhile, Koo co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna said the TMC leaders have also joined the platform. “Millions of Bengali users across the world and many Indians across the country would want to get updates from Mamata Ji directly,” he said.

Under its new owner, Elon Musk, Twitter is charging $8 per month for the verification badge, many microbloggers are now moving to other social platforms to express their views.
