"Smt Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is now on Twitter. You may follow her at @priyankagandhi," a tweet from the Congress' official Twitter handle said.
She didn't post a tweet but followed seven people, including her brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi as well as party leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot Randeep Singh Surjewala, Ahmed Patel and the Congress's official account.
Over 57,000 people followed her within hours of her joining the microblogging site.
Priyanka Gandhi (47) and Scindia (48) took charge as AICC general secretary UP East and UP west respectively last week.
Congress seems to have learnt its lessons from 2014 and has been scaling up its operations on social media platforms to challenge the BJP on a front which has been the saffron party's forte.
Rahul Gandhi has also been using Twitter for his attacks on the government and analysts credit his aggressive social media campaign for a turnaround of his image among the people.
Priyanka hasn't tweeted as yet but she has followed seven people, including her brother and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and party leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Ahmed Patel and the Congress's official account.
