The Bollywood’s fraternity on twitter got bigger by many folds when the Mr. Perfectionist joined the tweet race.

Filmmaker Karan Johar was one of the first people to welcome the actor to the community and tweeted “@aamir_khan on twitterverse people!!!”. Amitabh Bachchan, who reportedly convinced Aamir to join twitter, was also quick to extend greetings. “You have been tried and tested! Welcome, and thank you for agreeing to twitter! Now handle it brother! There will be MADNESS!!” read Big B’s tweet.

The This is really amazing, getting 38,512 fans (at 03:42 am on 1st July, 2010 IST) in a matter of hours. I won’t get these many fans in a lifetime lest I become the next Bill Gates blogging my way 😛 As a matter of fact I had to change the title and content of this post two time in the 10 mins. that it took me to write this post 🙂
