Amitabh Bachchan

The ubiquitous nature of social networking sites and the fact that fans are crazy for intimate details of Bollywood celebrities’ lives makes for a potent combination. In this connection, we have sized up the top Tweeters in Bollywood, and decoded their Twitter personalities!

Amitabh Bachchan, The Seriously Insightful Tweeter: The Shehenshah of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan is the leading twitter celebrity in India. The social media-savvy septuagenarian star is the numero uno Bollywood tweeter, with a whopping 7 million+ followers on the social networking site. His tweets are usually insightful, polite and very intelligent: much like the man himself. He’s so meticulous that he even numbers his tweets according to the days he’s been active on twitter!

Globally, Amitabh Bachchan narrowly missed the top 100, as his rank is a steady #115.
