Sachin Tendulkar on Twitter – Big bump-up for Indian twitter traffic ?
God of Cricket – Sachin Tendulkar – has come on twitter. His debut on twitter has not even completed 24 hrs and his Twitter follower count is literally on fire. He has set many records on the cricket field, but I guess on twitter as well he is en-route to creating some kind of record.
As of writing this particular post, Its been 15 hours since his first tweet and he has already garnered close to 40,000 followers. That is nearly close to a follower a second !!! Take that…
Twitter has taken Indian celebrities by storm – Many biggies have already joined twitter and in many cases twitter statuses by these celebrities have been front page news nationally. The twitter controversies have even adjourned our parliament :)
However, don’t expect any kind of controversial updates from Sachin Tendulkar – We are talking about a person who, even though being limelight for more than 20 years, has never been part of any controversy.
Lets look at what it will do to Twitter traffic in India – Sachin’s presence on twitter will bring ardent fans of cricket on twitter, just to follow what Sachin is doing when he is away from cricketing field – and trust me, that number runs in millions. Even if fraction of those join twitter, you can imagine what it will do to twitter traffic in India.
And from the Tweets Sachin has posted (3-4 of which are his personal images), I am sure every cricket fan will want to have a look at it.
Here are some of the images that have been posted by Sachin Tendulkar on Twitter:

I think Twitter should offer Sachin Tendulkar some kind of compensation for the kind of traffic he is going to generate for them…What say guys :)
