Twitter is the latest site that is taking Bollywood by a major storm. The likes of Karan Johar, Uday Chopra, Mallika Sherawat, Gul Panag, Kaizad Gustad, Ayesha Takia, Dino Morea, and Priyanka Chopra have all joined the bandwagon and are now frequent tweeters. Most interesting is the mere fact that while Mallika Sherawat who is tweeting from Los Angeles and had the greatest number of followers, it is Piggy Chopps who has surpassed her with 10,000 followers. The actress, who is known for being a gadget freak, has admitted to being frequently on the site and catching up with fans, “I’m having a lot of fun. It’s a great way for me to interact with my ‘tweeps’ directly… with no one in between! I think now that people have realized that it’s really me on twitter, the number of followers have grown. It’s mind blowing to have crossed this milestone within a month of being on twitter… Now I’m hoping my twitter family is going to grow even more!”
According to sources, Priyanka is extremely “net savvy” and takes out time from her busy schedule to “tweet regularly”. “She’s very net savvy and a gadget freak. In fact she was very active on Facebook and when she logged on Twitter, she got hooked on to it. For her it’s the best way to directly interact with fans around the world. She takes time to read each and every message sent to her and replies back as and when she can,” claims a source close to the actress.
But it’s not just tweeting. The actress is also regularly updating her followers with new pictures of herself giving them a peek into her life. At a recent media event she clicked a photograph with the entire press and quickly uploaded it for her followers to adore.
