Rajnikanth's Twitter debut irks his fans

South superstar Rajnikanth, who is gearing up for the release of his next ‘Kochadaiiyaan’, made his Twitter debut earlier today much to the pleasure of his fans both within and outside of the film industry. However, it seems his tweets have irked those well-wishers no end.

The account (@SuperStarRajini), which acquired 8000 followers in just a few minutes, seems to be monitored and managed by a PR team and has been seen tweeting like a bot account, with automated tweets not related to the actor at all. No doubt many of his fans who were following him tweeted their displeasure about it and others were seen unfollowing quickly.

One wonders whether the account has been hit by a bug pretty much as soon as it went live or whether indeed this is the actor’s PR team going on unnecessary overdrive.
