The News Minute | July 2, 2014 | 01:17 pm ISTÂ In May, this year, when the election season was at its peak, Twitter was taken by storm by a surprise guest. India made way for superstar Rajinikanth, who made his debut on the micro-blogging site, Twitter. As his followers multiplied by the second, media across all forums had special coverage just for the thalaivar. Today the Rajinikanth Twitter account has 665000 followers. Rajinikanth in his first tweet thanked all his fans and said he was looking forward to his digital journey. However, the journey so far, for most has been disappointing. We had expected Rajini Sir to share with us, if not the source of his superhero powers, at least tales of his heroism, or maybe even tell us a Rajini joke or two. But in the two months since he began his digital voyage, he posted just 7 tweets. Most related to his daughterĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s directorial debut, starring him in multiple roles, Kochadaiyyan; a few related to elections. So is the Twitter account, which is said to be handled by a PR agency, just a promotion platform? Now that news of the actor shooting for a Tamil action movie Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“LingaaĂ˘â‚¬Âť, where he will be seen in a double role, is doing the rounds, shall we expect a fresh tweet from him soon?
