His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum’s popularity continues to soar with the Crown Prince of Dubai reaching 2 million followers on Twitter.

While he still trails behind his father who has an impressive 6.84 million followers, breaking the 2 million mark is an impressive indicator of how popular the Prince is among the UAE population, which, in case you were wondering is at 9.3 million.

Sheikh Hamdan, who has 4.1 followers on Instagram, joined Twitter in March 2010. Unlike Instagram where he shares his adventures – “Every picture has a story and every story has a moment that I’d love to share with you Thanks and enjoy” – his Twitter account is used as a platform to discuss policies and government initiatives.
