Chennai: Arnab Goswami’s Independent News Channel Republic has made Social Media debut much ahead of its Satellite launch with a mission to make it a mass movement #RepublicOnSocial rather than just being a News channel that reports the News and views.
“Join us, Find us, Engage us, Run with us and Stay with us on this exiting journey to India’s First Independent News Channel and Global Venture” this was the welcome tweet that Arnab has for the followers of @republic on its twitter handle that was launched on 7th January 2017.
Since its launch @republic has posted around 12 tweets and as of now it has crossed 64k followers. The number of followers has increased from 33k on Saturday to 55k on Monday morning and by Monday afternoon it increased further to 64k.
Arnab Goswami and his @republic also received a rousing welcome from the Bangalore youth when he participated in Under25 Summit Bangalore 2017. While addressing the youth Arnab Goswami went on to brief what republic is all about and stated that his new media will stand for the change and disruption in society and political administration. He also expressed his support for the Indian armed forces while ranting those who support Pakistan in the name of neutral coverage. He also took o bureaucrats for grooming the “Lal Bathi” culture and enjoying the comfort of power ignoring the plight of the common man.
The under25 summit in Bangalore also launched the Republic anthem “Join Republic Join the Revolution” shouting the slogans “Re Pub lic… Re Pub lic… Re Pub lic… Re Pub lic…”
The launch of Republic News Channel is expected to be one of the most expected with maximum public awareness towards a Media Brand in the recent times.
