Yesterday, we all woke up to the news of Amitabh Bachchan threatening to quit Twitter after accusing the organisation of lessening the number of his followers and having been dethroned of being the most followed Indian actor on Twitter by Shah Rukh Khan. After Bachchan took to his micro-blogging site to share a still from his film ‘Hum’ and write, “T 2599 – TWITTER ..!!!?? you reduced my number of followers .. !!??HAHAHAHAHAHAHA .. !! thats 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 !!,” the rumours started doing the rounds that Bachchan is quitting Twitter.

Bachchan is undoubtedly one of the most active Twitter users in our country. Reportedly, the 75-year-old, who earlier had celebrated getting 33 million followers on Twitter, has got only 32,899,816 followers now. This makes him the second most followed Indian actor on Twitter around the globe after Shah Rukh Khan. We wonder what caused this dip in followers. Well, this doesn’t change anything as Big B, just like every other day, has been seen updating his followers with the happenings around the world and tweets about the same.
