Frequent tweets don't affect work as CM: Omar
Omar Abdullah said Twitter is a very useful tool to elicit feedback from a limited but important audience.

Srinagar: Popular for frequently posting comments on social networking site 'twitter', Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said his recurrent tweets did not affect his work as head of the government but helped in eliciting feedback from people on various issues.

"Typing 140 characters on the phone does not take time. Let me assure you it does not affect my work as Chief Minister," Omar told reporters.

"It is a very useful tool to elicit feedback from a limited but important audience," he said.

Omar said the use of twitter was secondary to his work as chief minister.

Asked if he had exceeded the speed limit while driving from Jammu to Srinagar yesterday, Omar said it was not possible as the jammers in his cavalcade did not allow speed to exceed 80 kms per hour.

"The fact that the down convoy from Srinagar to Jammu was stopped in view of the 'darbar move' helped me to use the road freely," Omar said.

In a tweet on the micro-blogging website, the chief minister had written that he drove from Jammu to Srinagar, a distance of nearly 300 kms through hilly terrain, in just six hours including the lunch break.
