The Tamil superstar, Rajinikanth has received warm welcome on Twitter, as he garnered 220K within 24 hours, ARY news has learnt.
The 63 years old, who is not unfamiliar with breaking records — be it films, trends, fan following, etc. — joined Twitter on May 5. But he broke all records at Twitter.
The news went viral and Thalaiva’s Twitter account @superstarrajini following went from zero to a whopping 2 lakh followers and counting within 24 hours.
Well, his name is synonyms with records, isn’t it! Avinash Yegyana-rayanan, a Thalaiva fan and professional shares, “Of course, as a big Rajini fan, I am thrilled. Rajini is so awesome that one tweet of his is equivalent to 3,792 tweets as per Twitter!
His one tweet has been retweeted 11,335 times and favorited 12,424 times. While these numbers are an indication to his legendary status, not even Rajinikanth can match up to how popular the micro blogging platform is in the west. In comparison, Ellen DeGeneres’s Oscars’ selfie was retweeted 778,800 times in the first half hour and crossed a million in the next half. At 3,428,710 retweets, it currently holds the record for the most retweeted tweet on the Twitter platform.
Also with 220,000 followers, he also has a long way to go to catch up with other Bollywood celebs like Amitabh Bachchan (8.62 million),Shahrukh Khan (7.52 million) and Salman Khan (6.78 million) among others.
