Does anyone know if Anna Hazare has a twitter account or a facebook page?. Not the one someone else creates. One that he created himself?. This guy would easily have the most fans/followers. Think about it. If even 1% of the Indian population decides to follow him on Twitter, we are talking about 12 million followers. Compare that to Lady Gaga who tops right now with over 9 million followers accumulated over 37 months of Twitter presence!
Thanks to social networks, for once, a fast unto death actually had the desired impact. When I was younger, someone was fasting all the time. No one died. They got all the press they wanted and promptly abused it. Anyone remember the legendary fast by Jayalalitha?. Or the 4-hour one by the current CM(how is it a fast unto death if it was only for 4 hours?).
Hope they actually pass the LokPal bill in my lifetime.
