Months before the 20-19 Lok Sabha elections, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati has joined Twitter. The BSP has said Mayawati will use this Twitter handle to share her programmes in the future. In a welcome post Mayawati said she would like to introduce herself to the Twitter family. Mayawati said she will use the handle to interact with her supporters.

The first post was written on January 22. Since then, Mayawati has been regularly sharing press releases on it.
