Launch of India’s first ‘Twitter-Thread Competition’

Today Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini (RMP) organised an online press conference to launch India’s first twitter-thread competition called “#Tweet4Bharat.”


Ravindra Sathe, Director General of RMP addressed the press. He introduced the background of this idea and added “since 1982, as part of its ‘Public Awakening’ mission; RMP has been working to shape the public discourse through seminars and events. The objective of “#Tweet4Bharat” is to encourage and motivate youngsters to use ‘twitter threads’ to write, discuss and deliberate on important issues of national importance.  The topics selected for the competition are a) National Integration b) Social Justice c) Gender Equality. The competition is open to all twitter users and is being conducted in Hindi, English and Marathi.”

“It begins on 1st August 2020 marking Lokmanya Tilak’s death centenary and will close on 10th Aug.” Sathe added.


Siddharth Kulkarni a popular twitter user and team member of the Tweet4Bharat further added that “The twitter-threads will be judged and awarded in three categories namely, Jury Choice (based on content), Twitterati choice (based on popularity) and Creative Presentation award (based on creativity in presentation). The winners will be decided by an eminent jury consisting of leaders from various walks of life. The results will be declared on 12th Aug by 6pm. Apart from attractive cash prizes, the top 27 winners of #Tweet4Bharat will present their views live at the high-powered Online National Conclave on the pre-Independence Day evening, 14th Aug. The winners will also be hosted for a retreat at RMP’s campus near Mumbai.”
