The King is back! Shah Rukh Khan made a long awaited appearance on Twitter today. He shocked and surprised his many followers by tweeting “back home after outdoor stints. nice to be bak to familiarity…and also with my familiar twitter friends. as promised a big HELLO !”. This tweet comes 11 weeks after his last.
It was rumored that Shah Rukh left the social networking site due to abuse from other Twitter users. Recently SRK said in an interview with NDTV that he felt “socially inept”, even shy, on Twitter, but promised to come back after knowing that thousands of people were wondering where he disappeared to.
He also tweeted that he would try to release a 10 second teaser of Ra.One directly on Twitter, before the full 30 second teaser is released on the 24th of March during the Australia vs. India quarterfinal match. And he closed with “love you all and will connect tomorrow in the day. have a restful nite.”
Judging by the reaction of his followers from today’s tweets, his return has been a successful one. We only hope he sticks around now. Twitter is not the same without him.
