So tweet, Vidya to join Twit­ter

Her films have shown her in many shades — good, bad and some­times even ugly, but in real life Vidya Balan has been a very pri­vate per­son. How­ever, the ac­tor, who so far has shied away from so­cial media, has fi­nally de­cided to join Twit­ter.

An in­sider says, “Vidya has never been a so­cial media per­son, and she is join­ing Twit­ter only be­cause there are too many fake han­dles that ex­ist and con­tinue to tweet un­der her name. She wants to start on a happy note, and feels a mem­ory from her child­hood will be a de­light to her fans. Her first tweet will be a black-and-white pic­ture of her as a tod­dler, draped in a sa­ree.”

The in­sider adds that she will use the mi­croblog­ging plat­form as a way to in­ter­act with her fans. “This is a whole new world for her. She has al­ways been aware of the plat­form, but be­fore this, she never felt the need to per­son­ally be a part of it,” says the in­sider.

Vidya was un­avail­able for a com­ment, but her spokesper­son con­firmed the news, say­ing, “Peo­ple want to dis­cover Vidya bet­ter as a per­son, as she has al­ways been in the news only for her pro­fes­sional achieve­ments.”
