His government does not have a Facebook page. And Mr Kumar says he has no interest in tweeting. "What is the meaning of Twitter?" he asked reporters this morning in considerably more than 140 characters. "It's chi chi che che... basically, the noise of birds tweeting. Let them do that every morning."
Mr Kumar's disdain for Twitter is in sharp contrast to his political rival, Narendra Modi, widely expected to land the opposition's prime ministerial nomination. Mr Modi tweets often, promoting his government's policies and often attacking the central government or its leaders like Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. He has more than 2 million followers.
In a barely-concealed swipe at him, Mr Kumar said, "Some leaders through excessive tweeting have turned it into a jarring sound. They seem to have no other work in a day than to make political statements for the media. Twitter serves actors who can't access their fans. Politicians should be able to connect with the people every day."
Mr Kumar ended a 17-year coalition with Mr Modi's party, the BJP, in June this year. For months, as the BJP manoeuvred its way towards promoting Mr Modi to a national leading role, the Bihar Chief Minister warned publicly that he was being forced to reconsider the political partnership.
Like Mr Modi's other detractors, Mr Kumar and his party, the Janata Dal United, accuse the BJP leader of not doing enough to stop hundreds of Muslims from being killed in communal riots in Gujarat in 2002 during his first term as the state's chief minister.
The BJP and Mr Modi have rejected those allegations.
