TheReserve Bank of India became the world’s only major central bank to gain one million followers on Twitter, boosting efforts to foster financial literacy in a society that is traditionally under-banked and vulnerable to frauds.
The bank’s Twitter handle@RBI reached the million mark on Sunday, Governor Shaktikanta Das said via a tweet. That’s up from about 892,000 followers it had in June, and compares with about 678,000 followers for the U.S. Federal Reserve, a little over 591,000 for the European Central Bank and a tad above 317,000 for the Bank of England.
RBI Twitter account reaches one million followers today. A new milestone. Congratulations to all my colleagues in RBI.9:22 AM · Nov 22, 2020
