Weak at maths or clever at propaganda? ‘Historian’ Ram Guha goofs up on Twitter

Ram Guha has goofed up on Twitter again in an attempt to show that media is subservient to Amit Shah and BJP. He wrote that the article published by Times of India was an ‘astonishing piece of fake news’. He also claimed that Sushma Swaraj and Arvind Kejriwal had more followers than Shah. When Twitter follower count alone is considered, Sushma Swaraj (11.1M) and Arvind Kejriwal (13.5M) have more followers than Shah(10.1M). But the article had taken into account Instagram and Facebook as well in their assessment.

Meanwhile, the number of followers that Arvind Kejriwal, Sushma Swaraj and Amit Shah can be seen from the below screenshots. Follower count of leaders in question on social media can be summarised as below

  • Amit Shah: Facebook 11.76 million. Twitter 10.1 million followers. Total: 21.86 million.
  • Arvind Kejriwal: Facebook 7.04 million following. Twitter 13.5 million followers. Total: 20.54 million.
  • Sushma Swaraj: Facebook 2.94 million following. Twitter 11.1 million followers. Total: 14.04 million.

Clearly, Amit Shah leads other two politicians on social media in terms of followers. The numbers are not on Guha’s side. However, propaganda of his ilk does not rely on facts.
