What ? Amitabh Bachchan threatens to leave twitter!

In a tweet that took the twitterati by storm , where Amitabh Bachchan threatened to quit twitter after many prominent Twitter users across the world lost more than a million followers as federal and state agencies in the US started investigating shadowy agencies that sell fake followers!

Amitabh Bachchan tweeted “”Twitter! You reduced my number of followers. Haha! That’s 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!” It is unsure as of now that the lost followers are due to the US investigation or some other cause.His followers has dropped from 33 million to 32.9 million.This approximately brings him on the same level as Shah Rukh Khan, who also has exactly 32.9 million Twitter followers.

The twitter game is strong with Deepika Padukone at 23 million , perfectionist Aamir Khan at 22.8 million and ami,Salman Khan at 30.7 million followers !

It is also speculated that the loss in followers is due to political reasons!

BJP MP Shatraghan Sinha, had condemned Big B’s silence over the violent demonstrations organised by right-wing  Karni Sena against the screening of movie ‘Padmaavat’, even as he took on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the same statement.

“Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan are being criticized for not coming out to openly condemn the protests against Padmaavat. But why must we in the entertainment industry be expected to take a stand on political issues when the honorable prime minister is quiet?” asked Sinha.

It is yet to see if Mr. Bachchan is serious about his threat or just a passing remark on the Twitter antics!
