When Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a bunch of Silicon Valley CEOs on Saturday night (Sunday morning in India), it was clear how much the 65-year-old has embraced the digital age. The 15th India PM is easily one of the most social media-savvy political leaders India has, with over 15 million followers on Twitter along with his significant Facebook following.
Here are five quotes from Modi's speech at the Digital India dinner in San Jose that show the Indian PM's on fleek.
"If Facebook were a country, it would be the third most populous one and the most connected."
"Google today has made teachers less awe-inspiring and grandparents more idle."
"Twitter has turned everyone into a reporter."
"The traffic lights that need to work the best are on CISCO routers."
"The status that now matters is not whether you are awake or asleep, but whether you are online or offline. The most fundamental debate for our youth is the choice between Android, iOS or Windows."
