Imran Khan brings landslide 'changes' to Twitter handle after assuming premiership
ISLAMABAD - The recently elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has brought landslide changes to his digital media presence by updating his bio on the Twitter profile, in accordance with his ascension in the political landscape.

Khan, who has 8.27 million followers, had written his bio as Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, however, as soon as he took oath of his office on Saturday, his twitter handle displayed his information as 'Prime Minister of Pakistan'.

Imran Khan has a massive social media presence and he often opts the same medium for communicating his message.

Meanwhile, the official page of Prime Minister's Office also uploaded Imran Khan's picture as its profile picture.

Moreover, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also updated the information on its website and displayed Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi as the Patron-in-Chief.

Imran Khan swept to power on a populist anti-corruption ticket and emerged victorious in the July 25 polls to become the Prime Minister of the country for the first time.
