1. Bitter Twitter Truth For Narendra Modi: Times Of India uses a Twitter app, Status People and makes an interesting story saying that 46% of them are fake and 41% inactive users. Read more here.

2. And what about Times of India’s ‘fake’ followers on Twitter: Two days later Niticentral publishes a reply to TOI’s article where it analyzes a list of 10 accounts using the same app and found TOI itself has  44% fake and 43% inactive users. Wonder what TOI has to say about this. Read more here.

3. Sakal Times launches “Pune Bus Day”: The local news daily is all set to launch a movement called “Pune Bus Day” on November 1, 2012. The initiative has also made sure that it reaches out to netizens via social media too. Read more here.

4. The Hindu-Classroom Ad: The hard hitting video from Hindu has already got 4000 plus more views and I am sure this is going to grow big. Unless someone wants it pulled down in the name of hate speech.
