Looking at the top tweets by the crown prince, he was active in addressing the Pasir Gudang crisis. Additionally, his visits to the victims were also tweeted. The crisis led to the resignation of Osman Sapian as the Menteri Besar of Johor.


According to TMJ, the decision to replace Osman Sapian had come in long before, and Osman’s alleged failure to act accordingly on the Kim Kim River chemical pollution crisis was the ‘icing on the cake’ that ended his tenure.

TMJ has a responsive crowd on Twitter as the percentage of Retweets & Mentions is tremendously higher than his tweets, at 99.46% to 0.54%.


Does this mean that the netizens are in support of the Crown Prince of Johor? Or is it the opposite?
