Now, chat with Aamir on Facebook
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan says he will soon post his first message on microblogging site Twitter but before that he plans to do a live chat on Facebook to keep impostors at bay.entertainment Updated: Jun 17, 2010 16:22 IST
"I've been using Facebook a lot... the problem is anyone can be an impostor on the Internet. So I am thinking of a live chat on Facebook so that people will at least know it's me and not some impostor," said Aamir.
And the reason for the actor's concern is genuine. "I have close to 300,000 friends on Facebook... I stay in touch with my friends and fans there and both of us know each other," he said.
Looking dapper in a jet black Chinese collar suit, the 45-year-old was in the capital on Wednesday, in a younger than ever avatar, to launch two new smartphones - Samsung Wave and Samsung Galaxy S. Aamir is the brand ambassador of Samsung.
Asked about joining Twitter, as advised by none other than the Big B, he said: "Since Amitji has asked me to join Twitter, I guess I will soon have to be on the social scene as he has got that kind of voice, I just can't say no to him. But I don't know how regular I'll be on Twitter.
"Amitji showed me the functions of Twitter when we were in London and right now I am just trying to understand it. I'll send my first tweet soon."
