Kathmandu, March 17
As observers and social media commentators claimed, the verified Twitter handle, @PresidentofNP, has been changed to @BidyaDBhandari. Twitter does not tolerate the change in the handles on verified accounts, so the verification has been removed.
New President Ram Chandra Paudel‘s secretariat says Paudel’s predecessor Bhandari has not communicated anything about the handover of the Twitter account yet. So far, Paudel’s team is just using his old personal Twitter account.
