I met Shah Rukh Khan, in 2011 and, wanted to badly be a part of his team. Thats when & how I decided to join TWITTER!
I hurriedly made my account as –> @z_jabberwocky (Yes, thats what I started as!) and started to tweet endlessly, to @iamsrk.
Within a few days, I learnt all about Twitter. In fact, even participated in a contest which would take me to Berlin, if I was to win. Sadly, I walked away with two tickets of the movie Don! I never missed a Q/A sessions with SRK but, I never got a reply from him.
Slowly, I started interacting with more people, and contacting editors of big newspapers became my new hobby. I managed to convince Mr. Prabhu Chawla, the edior of Indian Express, to publish one of my articles for the online equivalent of the newspaper. And, that is how I started writing. Even before I ever blogged!
I got about four-five articles published & it was a very proud moment for me & my family.
Ironically, that’s about the time got a tweet from SRK too. Although, I never got the bag. Still. 😉
So, now that I have shared my small ‘twitter’ story with you all, let me sum it up to why I’m thankful for the same.
- I can connect to anyone in the world. If I’m lucky I get replies too.
- I can become famous. (If I don’t quit & keep pushing)
- I made so many new friends
I realized I could never be a part of SRK’s team & that sort of watered the fire I had in me to get famous. I lost my ‘mojo’ & unfortunately stopped writing too.
However, I remembered the powers of twitter and I wanted to start again It would have been great, if I had not quit, but what’s done is done. I finally made my way back! I have a new name for twitter, same as my blog (@SlimExpectation)
