Impending Twitter Crash of 2010


From now on, you can say in public that you follow God and you won’t be misconstrued for a religious person. It has happened folks! Sachin Tendulkar is finally on twitter and I am following him. I first noticed that SRT was on twitter when Harsha Bhogle tweeted about it. As any normal cricket fan and/or an Indian would do, I started following SRT.

Of course, there have been many instances of impostors claiming to be SRT. People start twitter or facebook accounts as some celebrity/athlete X and the actual person, if they wanna join these social networking sites, have to get a handle such as The Real X or something along those lines.

The identity of this SRT account was confirmed by a few people, including Harsha Bhogle and Yuvraj Singh, among many others and also by the picture that was uploaded by Sachin himself.

But I digress. Here is what Aakash Chopra tweeted about Sachin getting a twitter account

Sachin crashed Cricinfo’s servers when he scored that double…Twitter must buck up…and buck up fast!!! :) Go SRT :)

and put twitter on high alert.

As of about an hour ago, Sachin is “up to 68000 followers. In 21 hours! An average of over 3000 an hour, but currently gaining over 6000 an hour!” according to Clarkyfanzine.

Twitter… You’ve been warned!
