Amitabh Bachchan, with his indefatigable spirit, is a shining example of how age is just a number. Among the current lot of celebrities, he continues to lead the pack in many ways, and is known to work at a maddening pace. Apart from this, much like his younger peers, he is extremely active on social media. Not only does he regularly write his blog and pen down his musings but also has a staggering presence on other social media platforms. Followed by over 30 million people at the time of writing, the actor is quite a delight on Twitter.
From using the platform to complain about faulty phone connections to even teach a lesson or two to younger folks, there have been far too many times when the megastar won over social media with his tweets. Earlier this year he had taken to Twitter to remind and slightly embarrass Sonam Kapoor for not replying to his birthday wish. After her birthday, while the actress was busy thanking others who wished her, Bachchan had promptly tweeted, “… and what about ME .. this is Amitabh Bachchan my dear .. i sent you an sms on your birthday and you never replied ..aaarrrgghh !! And she has not been the only one to have received such a tweet from the actor. Here are few other instances when the actor won hearts on social media with his tweets.
When the actor was all of us and complained about his phone.

He also does not stop from ‘reprimanding’ younger actors for not replying to his messages. You cannot ignore him.
… and what about ME .. this is Amitabh Bachchan my dear .. i sent you an sms on your birthday and you never replied ..aaarrrgghh !!😡

If you think he ‘scolds’ only actors on social media, then you are clearly wrong. He had also rebuked a young boy for insulting his parents.
even your parents were made by your grand parents .. did they crib about their bills …???

Apart from being the ‘angry man’ he is also extremely humorous and does not stop from taking a jibe. After the Olympics, when author Shobhaa De had tweeted “Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity,” the actor, playing on her words had replied “#PVSindhu .. aap “khaali haath” nahein, medal leke wapas aa rahein hain .. aur hum aapke saath ‘selfie’ nikalne chahate hain!!”
This is what De had tweeted.

And this is what the actor had replied.
T 2352 – #PVSindhu .. aap “khaali haath” nahein, medal leke wapas aa rahein hain .. aur hum aapke saath ‘selfie’ nikalne chahate hain !!

He had also set an example by promoting equality.
