After 5.5 years of his questionable service to Bangkok, former city governor Aswin Kwanmuang finally opened a Twitter account yesterday. 
Winning his golden ticket to the governor’s chair after the ruling junta took control, Aswin is now running to win his seat fair and square for the first time in an election set to be held on May 22. 
Netizens have gathered to express their warm welcome to his inaugural Twitter account. 
“You served as Bangkok governor for many years and didn’t bother to create a Twitter account. Now, with the new election, you decided to create one huh?” 
“I hope your Twitter account can have a longer lifespan than Anutin’s account,” wrote one Twitter user, referring to the similar event where Thailand’s Health ministry Anutin Charnvirakul closed his Twitter account after being bombarded with public criticism. 
After an officious announcement that this was his official account, the former governor, who stepped down only last week to run for the office, posted a picture of himself while walking his dog on Sunday.
