According to a report on Spotboye, Twitteet, a social media analytics firm Sonu Sood ranked number 4 across categories in October.The categories whose Twitter engagement was analysed by Twitteet include Politicians, Journalists, Business Leaders Founders and Investors, Sportspersons, Movies stars, Authors, Chefs, and Comedians. Prime Minister Narendra Modi topped the list, followed by Rahul Gandhi, Virat Kohli and then Sonu Sood on number 4. Sonu Sood dominated the Bollywood list, as he emerged on top, leaving behind Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and other Bollywood stars when it comes to Twitter engagement.
Responding to this honour Sonu Sood says, “I was not aware of this! Wow!I guess I am using the social-media platform to connect with people who need me. And that’s how the medium should be used.And not to post your new shoes or shirt. Technology is meant to bridge the gap between the Common Man and a Celebrity.”
Sonu feels the social-media platform can be used to change lives. “And I am glad I’m doing that. I got on Twitter years back. I didn’t know back then why I had joined Twitter. Today I know.”
Twitter has been an invaluable tool for Sonu’s missionary zeal. “Every single day Twitter helps me save lives. We we were able to connect with 7.5 lakh migrants.We were able to save 2.5 lives during the whole migration process during the lockdown. We are able to do 20-22 life-saving surgeries every day…liver transplant,kidney transplant….you name it! And now we have organized 970 surgeries during the last 3-4 months. I think that’s where twitter came in. The journey is on. I still have miles to go.”
