As per data provided by Opalina Technologies, Republic has 2, 41, 000 twitter followers which is roughly 3% compared to Times Now’s 7.4 million followers on twitter.

Gaurav Sharma, Co-Founder, Opalina Technologies, said, “The conversation generated by Republic has a higher retention level. This is between 20-30 per cent after 12 hours of story going on-air.

The second most popular one was #sunandamurdertapes with 26 per cent, followed by #akhileshinsuts martyrs (11 per cent) and #republicstingslashkar (nine per cent).
