About a year ago, in November 2011, Modi had four lakh followers. He added six lakh followers since then, touching the million mark on Tuesday.
Thanking his followers, the Internet-savvy chief minister tweeted today: "A million followers! These are not mere numbers but it signifies your love and affection. Heartfelt thanks to you all."
BJP's media adviser Jagdish Bhavsar said, "Modi's development agenda is being endorsed across the country and the world over. And it is showing in his fan following."
Modi started using Twitter in 2009. In 2010, he had one lakh followers. He also has a blog, which he updates regularly.
He often uses the two social platforms, Twitter and blog, to make political statements.
