Have a election war- room. It is more important that the social media staff is made up by people who have communicative and creative skills rather than by political tactics experts. This should be guided by political experts. The coordinator has to compensate for the possible lack of political vision and, in a certain way, to protect his staff so that they can work well and usefully, only focusing on the technical/creative components of their role In order to support the coordinator for new media it is highly recommended to rotate experts who will deal with the “raw” creation of contents. Managing the web communication of a political figure requires the same effort as the one necessary to set up a press office or a team which deals with media planning and event planning. Professionals from IIT, IIM, Harvard like Rajesh Jain, B Mahesh, Arvind Gupta are the man behind Narendra Modi’s 3.67 million Twitter followers and 12 million likes on Facebook.
