Social media is used extensively by youth in the age group of 18-22 years. As such many political leaders and activists are using Facebook, What's App and Twitter to slam the government policies. The Congress has set up a special committee at Gandhi Bhavan, that carries out the social media activity of the party. As far as Telangana Telugu Desam (TTD) working president Revanth Reddy is concerned, a number of his followers have opened sites in his name and are posting the party programmes live. TRS leaders, though lagging behind in this aspect, is slowly trying to gain foothold, by giving counters to the Congress leaders.
