The references in the hadith to ''a hand reaching out from the sky'' and saying ''this is Hazrat Mahdi (as), follow him.'' suggest that Hazrat Mahdi's (as) hand will be seen on the internet and TV

Qaza’ah (N. b. Hammad) Zuhri. He said: ... A VOICE WILL BE HEARD FROM THE SKY, SAYING, “THE SAINT OF ALLAH IS A COMPANION OF A SUCH. [Referring Hazrat Mahdi (as)]
Asma bint Umays said: THE SIGN OF THAT DAY IS A HAND REACHING FROM THE SKY AND PEOPLE STOPPING TO LOOK AT IT. 1


... AT THAT TIME A HAND WILL BE SEEN TO REVEAL ITSELF FROM THE SKY...  2


Conflicts and disputes will continue until A HAND APPEARS FROM THE SKY and a voice is heard to cry, “This is your leader, the Mahdi.” 
THE SIGN OF THAT DAY: A HAND WILL REACH OUT OF THE SKY and people will see and look at it. 3


And he [Prophet Musa (as)] drew out his hand and there it was, pure white to those who looked. (Surat al-Ar’af, 198)
 

In the hadith our Prophet (saas) reveals that one of the signs before the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) that will enable people to recognize him is “a hand reaching out from the sky.” Again according to the hadith, “people will see and look at” this hand. Together with this hand that reaches out from the sky, a voice will be heard saying, “The saint of Allah [(Hazrat Mahdi (as)] is such and such a companion.” That voice will be that of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not claim to be Hazrat Mahdi (as), but as the person who is best informed about him, he will describe Hazrat Mahdi (as) through the television and the Internet.

Again according to the indications in the hadith, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear before people’s eyes through the television and the Internet, and people will thus constantly see his hand. The signs also indicate that, like the hand of the Prophet Musa (as) as described in the Qur’an, Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) hand will be very attractive and eye-catching. And it seems that his hand will always be prominently displayed.  

Another hadith says that “Hazrat Mahdi (as) will use his hands when he talks; he will move his hand as he wishes to emphasize what he is saying and that people will see those motions:” 


 

Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be slow of speech. HE WILL STRIKE HIS LEFT KNEE WITH HIS RIGHT HAND when he speaks slowly and steadily. 4


It appears from all these indications that “a hand being seen by people” is another important sign enabling them to recognize Hazrat Mahdi (as).
