A quick update on what the stars are saying in 140 characters.

It's perhaps another display of his marketing savvy!

Aamir Khan, without a single tweet, already has 22,000 followers and 485 lists waiting with bated breath of what the actor will tweet first.

For now, his bio states, "Oscar nominated producer/ One of India's leading actor/ director."

Now, can anyone compete with that? The buzz states that the actor will start twittering on July 1!

So get yourself added to his followers and wait for this Piscean's pearls of wisdom!

Twitter just got even more interesting, eh?

The Bachchan mania is one to witness and Sr Bachchan posts some pictures with wry tweets.

He says, "Every Sunday for the last 28 years, non stop and without fail, the crowds come Coming in to Jalsa to meet Sunday crowds... but getting in is also a huge exercise.

Sr Bachchan at his gates last Sunday along with Abhishek and Aishwarya.

He tweets: "Sunday crowds ... have no words for this attention!! Abhi and Ash join me at the gate ... will never be able to repay this love."  

Wow!

PS: Did you know Jr Bachchan's current background picture is "its a photo I took of Aishwarya during the filming of tere bina the song in guru."

Bipasha Basu maybe planning to get her own Twitter account (as her staff announces), but till then Bong siren is being her diva self!

The actor actually has her staff -- BBS -- tweet on her behalf! Now, that's some attitude we like, especially because it's perhaps something we all wonder -- do the stars really tweet/blog themselves?

My favourite tweet: "Please note website bipashabasu.net listed as 'unsafe', link removed. It is suspected attack from jealous rivals (BB Staff update)"

Surely beats regular tweets, eh?
