Amitabh Bachchan Threatens To Quit Twitter Over Fall In Followers- Is It Just A Joke Or Something Else?

Amitabh Bachchan Seems To Be Disturbed Over Sudden Loss In Twitter Followers

(Last Updated On: April 2, 2020)

The ageless angry young man has risen again!

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan seemingly has once again revived his angry young man spirit. The Big B is currently very upset as his number of followers on Twitter as decreased drastically and this seems to be a grave matter of concern.

It seems that AB ended yesterday’s night on an angry note. He took to Twitter late night to lash out the fact that it has drastically deleted his number of followers which by his record should be over 33 million.


The megastar has been dethroned by none other than Shahrukh Khan. SRK, currently with 3,29,44,338 followers, has been ranked number one on the microblogging site, while Bachchan is on the number two spot with 3,29,02,353 followers.

The actor’s amusing tweet has taken the micro-blogging world by storm. AB fans had a sleepless night as they pondered over the reason of decrease in the number of followers and the conspiracies behind it. Some of SRK fans were equally delighted over the fact that their idol is ahead in the race (if it is one).


It is still not very clear whether AB was actually joking or is he serious about quitting Twitter over fall in the number of followers. At the time of publishing, his last tweet came about 14 hours ago, which is quite uncharacteristic of him!

It may sound amusing, but on a serious note, AB is not the only one who has lost Twitter followers drastically (60,000 to be precise). One of the US investigating agencies has recently busted shadowy agencies that sell fake followers.

According to New York Times report, entertainers, entrepreneurs, athletes and media figures were among those who lost followers. Most of these fake followers were brought from a company called Devumi, a company that has more than 200,000 customers, including reality television stars, professional athletes, comedians, TED speakers, pastors and models.

The point to be noted here such ids are not just fake followers, but serve as phantom foot soldiers in political battles online. These bots or fake followers follow, retweet and like tweets sent by clients who have bought their services.

So, the question remains is whether Amitabh Bachchan, an idol figure for millions of Indians, is fretting over the loss of seemingly fake followers or is there a deeper conspiracy to rob him of his ardent fans?
