After Sonu Nigam, now Ram Gopal Varma quits Twitter


Days after singer Sonu Nigam deleted his Twitter account, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has decided to quit micro-blogging site, Twitter.

The 55-year-old director, who has had his share of Twitter fights and trolls, joined the social media platform on May 27, 2009.

“My pleasantly unpleasant surprise is I am getting out of Twitter…To all my followers, no thanks for following me all these years,” he tweeted.

RGV said he will now use photo and video sharing website/app Instagram.

“I decided to speak only through pictures and videos on Instagram from now on…

“This my last tweet before my tweet death..but I will not RIP nd seriously work from now on @RGVzoomin Birth:27/5/2009 Death:27/5/2017 (sic),” he concluded.

Varma is the latest celebrity to quit Twitter. Earlier this week singer Sonu Nigam deactivated his account in support of former singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, whose account was suspended by the microblogging site for violation of rules.

Abhijeet had targetted yet another woman on Twitter with his usual misogynistic rants.
