Yesterday saw Amitabh Bachchan biding goodbye to the micro-blogging site Twitter on a sarcastic note. Sharing a picture from his film Hum, where he is choking a bad guy, the text of his yesterday’s tweet read ,“T 2599 – TWITTER ..!!!?? you reduced my number of followers .. !!??HAHAHAHAHAHAHA .. !! thats a joke .. time to get off from you .. thank you for the ride .. there are many ‘other’ fish in the sea – and a lot more exciting !!”.
The reason for his exit from the social media platform was a sudden reduction in the number of his followers on Twitter and losing the tag of “Most followed Indian Actor” to Shah Rukh Khan. As always trolls started pouring in for Big B accusing him for sulking over the number of his followers.
Taking all of it sportingly, he’s responded to all the trolls in a tweet saying “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA……social media – you are a delight!! Following Followers & Tweets – you are a delight.. who to follow, you are a delight .. India Trends – you are delight .. Each human in World a delight .coz’ we are all TWITTERED”

According to a report of Bollywoodlife an article was published in New York Times which stated, “More than a million followers have disappeared from the accounts of dozens of prominent Twitter users in recent days as the company faces growing criticism over the proliferation of fake accounts and scrutiny from federal and state inquiries into the shadowy firms that sell fake followers. The people losing followers include an array of entertainers, entrepreneurs, athletes and media figures, many of whom bought Twitter followers or artificial engagement from a company called Devumi.” Twitter is going to take action against Devumi as it’s unacceptable to them.
