In the current generation celebrities of film industry, it is hard to find someone who does not have a social networking account. The fever is spreading fast among veterans as well. Following the footsteps of legendary music composer Ilaiyaraja, 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan and Superstar Rajinikanth, Ace director Mani Ratnam has also entered the world of social media.
The veteran filmmaker who is best known for his brevity in conveying his views in films as well as in public discourse has opted for the platform that can be associated with his character. The 'Kadal' director has just marked his foot prints in Twitter where a user cannot use more than 140 characters to convey a message.
The first tweet of the director is "I am now on twitter". In the next couple of tweets the director has confirmed his real presence in the micro blogging site and thanked his wife, actor-director Suhasini for letting him into the world of twitter.
Matching his level of popularity, the director's Twitter account is nearing 1000 followers within a few hours of opening.
