Twitter Alert!

May 09, 2010

KARACHI: There is a lot happening on Twitter this week. Sachin Tendulkar joined the microblogging site and was welcomed on the website by Bollywood celebrities.

The Indian newspaper Mid Day is campaigning for Tendulkar to outdo about five million followers of Ashton Kutcher, who himself at one point challenged CNN. Whether Tendulkar will beat Kutcher’s fan-following or not is a separate issue. For now, we present the best tweets this week.

My kids are happy that I am finally on Twitter. They have been trying to get me to join Twitter or Facebook for ages. I am still getting the hang of it.

Jimmy Kimmel

If I was a cow, I would definitely move to India.

Regarding Kasab, if he escapes the death penalty, then we must abolish capital punishment for what other crime would you say is worse?!

Headed to Time’s 100 Most Influential Dinner meanwhile I cannot even influence housekeeping to restock my mini bar.
