Bollywood is surely bitten by the Twitter Bug, After Priyanka Chopra, Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan & a host of other celebrities, It’s the turn of the almighty King Khan Himself, who has joined Twitter on Saturday – 2nd of January 2010 with the id – iamsrk.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Official ID on Twitter “iamsrk” was confirmed by his friend and famous Producer Director Karan Johar tweeted to his 50,000-plus followers that King Khan had joined the social networking site, Twitter. With minutes, there was a flurry online as thousands of fans searched for @iamsrk, as Shah Rukh Khan calls himself on Twitter.
SRK’s first tweet, posted in the early hours of Sunday morning, said, “hi everyone. being extremely shy i never thought i would be here. but my friend @kjohar25 insisted that i should learn to share my life.” And SRK’s best buddy, filmmaker Karan Johar even tweeted after Shah Rukh crossed the 10000-mark in 12 hours, “twitterverse in a tizz!!! iamsrk will am sure enjoy the twitterpower and add it to it in his own way….” SRK tweeted, “thanx everyone this is really sweet…didnt expect such a warm welcome. love to u all.’ His last tweet in the morning said, “kids and life calling…watching tim burton’s 9 with them…last holiday…so up late…catch up later. sleep or be awake well.love to all.” While actors Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar welcomed SRK to Twitter and asked fans to follow him, SRK himself is following actor Riteish Deshmukh, businessman Anand Mahindra and Karan Johar, among others.
Shahrukh had earlier used the blogging medium to promote his IPL Team Kolkata Knight Riders on their official website, & his entry this week on Twitter certainly proves that SRK might be using this medium to promote his upcoming & among the much awaited movies of this year – My Name is Khan.
