Salman Khan’s Fifth Year on Twitter: A Short History of His Tweets
SALMAN HAS BEEN ON TWITTER SINCE 2010. SINCE THEN, HE’S GATHERED 11.4 MILLION FOLLOWERS AND HAS PUT OUT 41,500 TWEETS
Actor Salman Khan is celebrating his fifth year on social networking site Twitter – or, rather, his fans are celebrating it for him. #5YearsOfSalmanOnTwitter is currently trending.
Salman, who made his debut as leading man in Maine Pyar Kiya and has recently starred in blockbusters such as Dabangg, Kick, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger, has been on Twitter since 2010. Since then, he’s gathered 11.4 million followers and has put out 41,500 tweets.
He follows only 10 other Twitter handles – brother Arbaaz Khan, sister Arpita, actresses/co-stars Preity Zinta, Sonakshi Sinha, Daisy Shah and Jacqueline Fernandez, tennis star Sania Mirza, actor Pulkit Samrat who is by way being his protege, actress-politician Bina Kak and his own charity Being Human.
In his Twitter profile, Salman describes himself as ‘Film actor, artist, painter, humanitarian.’.
The many subjects the actor addresses on Twitter include his films, family and Being Human. He also notably sent out a series of tweets in 2012 asking Pakistan to free Sarabjit Singh, an Indian on death row across the border. A year later, a grieving Salman tweeted again when Sarabjit died after being attacked by two fellow prisoners in the Lahore jail he had spent over 20 years in.
