Before his visit to India, the jubilant US President Donald Trump in a twitter message said that he was "Number 1" on the social network and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was second.
Trump claimed Facebook's chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, said he was "Number 1" on the social network -- apparently referring to his follower count -- and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was second.
Later, experts on social media said that Trump made a mistake as the true fact is that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the top one and US President Trump is second. According to Twiplomacy's 2019 rankings, it's PM Modi who is first among world leaders, with more than 44 million followers on Facebook. Donald Trump is a distant second. (Close to 26 million.)
But former president Barack Obama -- no longer a government official – is enjoying 55 million Facebook followers.
Trump arrives on February 24. Here's here for a two-day visit of Ahmedabad and Delhi, his first to India since becoming US president.
