At around 11 pm IST, on Monday night, the ‘follower’ and ‘following’ counts of Twitter users inexplicably turned to zero. It turned out that a Turkish hacker was the cause and Twitter temporarily went offline to fix the bug. But until it officially put out this news, the Bollywood brigade on the portal began freaking out.
Here’s what Bollywood tweeted:
