One of the most active of the “Twitteratis”, Priyanka Chopra added another feather to her illustrating Twitter journey by visiting the Twitter HQ at San Francisco following a special invitation. At the time of writing this article, she had already crossed 200,000 followers on Twitter, a first for a Bollywood celebrity.
Reports have it that she was in US for the shooting of Sajid Nadiadwala’s “Anjaana Anjaani”. Sources say that she was in a studio for the NDTV Indian of the Year programme where she met the Twitter team, who invited her to the Head Quarters at San Francisco. even during the NDTV Indian of the year programme twitter was the hot topic with SRK and Shashi Tharoor discussing their twitter follower count on stage. Infact Karan Johar won an award for propagating twitter among bollywood celebs as well. There was also an exclusive chit chat with Biz stone the founder of twitter in the same awards programme.
Priyanka met Twitter co-founder, Biz Stone at Twitter HQ as well. She also tweeted about the event saying “My day was really interesting because I was invited to Twitter headquarter in San Francisco! Had a great time. Thanks Biz and team for the wonderful hospitality.”
Priyanka has moved forward by leaps and bounds in the Twitter arena, leaving other celebrities like Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor and others behind in her wake. A big reason for that has been her regularity on Twitter and her willingness to interact with her fans.
Bollywood could drive twitter beyond facebook?
Bollywood, Cricket and Sex Sell! Thats true for India. So if more than half of bollywood i.e. right from Shahrukh To Shammi Kapoor is on twitter it wont be wrong to predict that Twitter could be a massive force in the days to come in India. If the NDTV awards night is anything to go by then bollywood and TV reporters are obsessed with this new medium and given how worried celebs are about their reputation its unlikely that they will disown their tweets and followers anytime soon. So watch out facebook because twitter is playing the bollywood card very smartly!
