Indian-origin student tweets to success

It took just a simple tweet from an Indian-origin student to impress British Foreign Secretary William Hague.

Gopal Rao, an MBA student at the University of Cambridge, answered a question posed by Hague to win the UK Twitter prize, according to a report in Digital By Default News.

Hague marked his 200,000th follower on Twitter by asking his followers to tweet the answer to this question: “What do you think is the biggest contribution UK foreign policy can make to the world?”

The winning entry was from Gopal Rao (@gopalisation), who answered: “UK foreign policy should focus on emancipation of #girlsandwomen through enterprise, supported by vibrant #socent culture within UK.”

The prize was to meet the foreign secretary and live tweet an event. Gopal met Hague Wednesday and discussed the ‘Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict’ initiative.
