Malaysia Prime Minister Razak invites Twitter followers to breakfast

Shares

As part of a contest to celebrate reaching 500,000 Twitter followers, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak offered the person who helped him hit the milestone the chance to have breakfast with him.

Anwaruddin Izzuddin, 15, was invited to the meal, along with Lim Weng Marc, Shashi Muniandy, and Mohd Azhar. Each participant was allowed to bring a guest.

Izzuddin said he was delighted to win the contest. He only started following @NajibRazak after finding out about the contest from his brother.

"But when I got a call ... I thought it was a prank,” he told New Straits Times. “I could not believe that I would have a chance to sit and have breakfast with the prime minister.”

"He talked to us about his efforts to improve the country," said Marc, 24, "and we can see that he is really passionate and sincere about his work.”
