Superstar Rajinikanth’s official Twitter page has just one tweet and 225k followers. Even before any tweet he had more than 10,000 followers who were discussing what his first tweet would look like. By putting an end to all these talks, came a very simple and thankful tweet from this polite mega star.
“Salutation to the Lord. Vaṇakkam aṉaivarukkum !! A big thank you to all my fans. Excited on this digital journey”
The tweet has been retweeted at least 10,683 times and favored 11,332 times by his fans so far.
Within few minutes of his joining the Twitter came the tweet from Twitter India
“Vanakkam, Namaste, Salaam, Hello Rajinikanth! Please join us in welcoming @SuperStar-Rajini to Twitter.”
Twitter is lucky enough to have Rajinikanth because it is the first social media joined by him. Very popular but reserved superstar picked Twitter to interact with his fans because he found Twitter flooded with all sorts of news and trends. Rajinikanth’s social media presence will be handled by Fluence, first undertaking of CA Media Digital.
Twitter users can follow and speak to cinematic icon Rajinikanth @SuperStarRajini. Though fans are happy but critics have something else to say. They are calling it a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie Kochadaiiyaan. His official page is just before the release of his much awaited Tamil film Kochadaiiyaan which is also a directorial debut of his younger daughter Soundarya. It is the first 3D computer-animated period film starring Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone. Stylized dialogue delivery and certain manners like using goggles are the main draw and part of his popularity.
There are many film stars who can be found on Twitter like Amitabh Bachchan (8.61 million followers), Shah Rukh Khan (7.51 million followers), Kamal Haasan etc. Rajinikanth has also been welcomed by many stars from film fraternity.
