I am back with another post related to Twitter. Ya, you can conclude that I am hanging around this wonderful microblogging tool a lot. But my last post, Does India rank 3rd in Twitter population? made me think, whether that information is valid or not, there are a lot of people of my interest on Twitter and they include bollywood celebrities.
Though not many bollywood celebrities have joined the twitter bandwagon, the number is increasing everyday and thats not it. Most of them are quite active giving updates of their movies, promotions, visits and life. The also share pictures, videos that you may not find anywhere else. Helps you feel and think you are connected. You can be feel a lot closer to your favorite stars and thats not all, many of them even respond to your tweets!! Now how cool is that?!
So here in this post I have list 15 active bollywood celebrities. I say active because there are a few of likes Aarmir Khan, A R Rahman who have not been able to update their Twitter status so often. The following list is Random and in no particular order:
1. Priyanka Chopra – @priyankachopra
2. Uday Chopra – @udaychopra
3. Sonam Kapoor – @sonamakapoor
4. Imran Khan – @1mrankhan
5. Dino Morea – @dinomorea9
6. Karan Johar – @kjohar25

See you all around. Happy Tweeting folks!!! Do leave a comment here…
Now, how cool and unbelievable is that?? Twitter which is growing everyday though not as fast as facebook ranks India being the 3rd largest in user base!
I was going through my tweets this morning (for the unaware follow me on @onlyyourspiyu) and I bumped into a blog post regarding this. It was surely amazing and a proud feeling did approach me. Afterall with so many folks all around the world being hooked to Twitter and India compared to others having not such a great Internet using Population still bags the position!!
Following are some graphs and figures to support the notion. The source of the image is Alexa and the information is this blog.
Just after I posted this information I was curious to dig further, as in simple words, this fact isnt something I could digest that easily. On further probing I found out that just 2 months back according to the sysomos twitter report, posted on trak.in, India was holding only .87% as the user base comapred to the 7% shown above.
Now this information makes the above information look not-so-real, India can never climb the ladder that fast in just 2months, we would need a Twitter Revolution to happen to make that possible. So what is true here is still in question!?
What do you guys think??
