Prime Minister Imran Khan, who used to follow 19 accounts on Twitter, has unfollowed everyone on the microblogging site, including the official handle of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

PM Imran, who has 12.9 million followers, used to follow Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood, Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari, Planning Minister Asad Umar, estranged PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen and late Naeemul Haque.

He also followed organisations he founded, i.e. Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital and Namal University. He also unfollowed his ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith.


Imran Khan emerged as the ninth most-followed world leader on the microblogging site in July this year, according to a study by Burson Cohn & Wolfe (BCW). 

In past, social media users had observed that the premier had unfollowed journalist Hamid Mir. It was assumed that the decision was taken amid rising criticism of the government by the anchorperson and his channel.
