The Digital Media Wing (DMW) at the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has succeeded in verifying 45 official accounts to strengthen Pakistan’s digital presence.

The list contains the Twitter accounts of many officials, including the President of Pakistan, the Senate of Pakistan, the PM Initiatives, the Deputy Speaker of National Assembly, the Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and many Federal Ministries and Ministers.

The coveted blue verification badge that appears on Twitter profiles lets people know that the account is of public interest and is authentic.

This breakthrough came after the media wing developed a communication channel with a Twitter office in the region to address such matters and receive Twitter support in Pakistan.

The General Manager at the Digital Media Wing, Imran Ghazali, explained it is a small but significant step as part of the overall strategy to strengthen the Government of Pakistan’s digital presence.

Ghazali added it is critically important for the government to have verified accounts to disseminate authentic information, news, and updates of an official nature.

The verified accounts would also help the government reach more people. Moreover, they would also be taken as the first source of authentic information related to ministries. 

The GM also stressed that he has been working with other digital media platforms like Google, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to assure fake accounts in the name of the GOP are removed, and authenticated accounts are established. The government of Pakistan will also announce the list of authentic accounts of Ministries and Ministers.

The Focal Person to the PM on Digital Media, Dr. Arslan Khalid, tweeted and appreciated the DMW for getting the Government of Pakistan’s official accounts verified on Twitter.
