Sachin Tendulkar sets new off-field record! 10 Million Twitter Fans for Little Master
Finally, it's here! Sachin Tendulkar, God of cricket, has reached 10 million followers on Twitter! Personally, being a fan of the little master, I was waiting for this day for years. Today, while seeing his tweet praying for the people affected and demised in the Brussels terror attack, I randomly had a look on his profile. Voila! I was the happiest man of the moment, honestly. Sachin Tendulkar has 10 million followers now! The first ever cricketer to reach this milestone!
Sachin, who retired from international cricket back in 2013, is still popular among the cricket fans. We witnessed his charismatic presence in the India-Pakistan clash at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The chants of 'Sachin Sachin' has lifted the giant stadium. A year ago, with the rising star Virat Kohli's popularity, people have speculated that he will leave Sachin behind, at least on twitter. However, this did not happen. Sachin is the master when it comes to making & breaking records. And the record of being the first cricketer to have 10 million followers will always be with the magical Indian batsman now.
"Sachin, my personal greetings to you on completing the 10 million fan count on twitter! You are a hero for a lifetime. Cricket will continue; cricketers will come; records will be made; records will be broken; there will be no other like you, for sure! I am also one of those millions who started playing cricket only with a dream - to be like Sachin! You have inspired millions since you started playing and your name will always be there to invite youngsters in the grassy field with 22 yards of smooth space."
Nevertheless, twitter follower counts for Sachin Tendulkar is no testimony to his popularity. He lives in the heart of millions of people who are old enough to operate a smartphone. Still, for the online generation, he is a twitter icon too.
Best wishes for your life, dear Sachin!
