Twitter Seva is a superb initiative
Twitter Seva is Twitter’s India-first innovation. As a matter of fact, it is the fourth ministry to launch this service. So far Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Railways, and Ministry of External Affairs are the ones for such initiatives. Indian citizens and other stakeholders can now tweet to @manjosinhabjp using the respective department hashtag to raise their concern. The respective hashtags are #BSNLSeva, #MTNLSeva, #DOTSeva, and #PostalSeva. In short, these hashtags can be of great help to raise an issue with these 4 departments under the ministry. Rather, this is a bold step to provide timely transparent government service to citizens across the country. As a matter of fact, this is Twitter India’s fully customized e-governance delivery model. And this is in order to realize the vision of minimum government and maximum governance.
The Minister is quite hopeful while launching this service. He says that the telecom ministry and Department of Post will act in a systematic manner. Henceforth, the telecom ministry and DoP will be able to compile complaints in a better way using Twitter Seva data. Moreover, it will also help them to categorize and segregate the severity of these complaints. Rather, they will be able to segregate them into immediate, mid-term, and long-term complaints. Further, Minister says this is a huge challenge as India has the largest postal network in the world. At the same time, the number of mobile-phone subscribers is already more than 1 billion. While the complaints will start pouring in from across the country, it will take some time to streamline it. The minister is quite hopeful that the situation will help the ministry to rise up to this challenge.
Twitter Seva is a gigantic task
While the Twitter Seva is to serve the deserving people to resolve their issues, there is no doubt that some miscreants will try to misuse it. Now, Twitter authorities will take care of it.
