Just days before the launch of his new film Kochadaiiyaan, Tamil star Rajinikanth has joined Twitter. The actor is currently shooting in Mandya for his new film Lingaa produced by Sandalwood producer Rockline Venkatesh. Even before he posted in first and the only tweet (till now) Rajinikanth managed 10,000 followers.
After his first tweet; "Salutation to the Lord. Vanakkam aaivarukkum !! A big thank you to all my fans. Excited on this digital journey http://goo.gl/hyuvZx" he has managed to garner 75,000 followers within a few hours. The star's twitter handle is @SuperStarRajini and everyone from Tollywood to Bollywood is welcoming him. Sonu Nigam's tweet about Rajini joining twitter itself got nearly a hundred retweets.
Rajinikanth's first tweet has got thousands of retweets already. Even Twitter's official India handle welcomed Rajinikanth to the micro-blogging site. This is Rajinikanth's first foray into the digital social networking.
