And while you were at it, He signed up too: the one who for the last 24 years has consistently answered a billion prayers:
Finally the original SRT is on twitter n the first thing I’d like to do is wish my colleagues the best in the windies,— sachin tendulkar ( @sachin_rt) May 4, 2010
Now, as @sachin_rt glides into the twilight after announcing his retirement from international cricket, a grateful country bids farewell.
In recognition of the limitless joy that @sachin_rt has brought to our lives for nearly a quarter of a century, we couldn’t think of a more apt message with which to launch our India blog than #ThankYouSachin.
Via this blog, we’ll keep you connected to everything happening on Twitter in India and in the global town square.
If you’d like to thank Sachin as well, BCCI has a special treat in store: a “Digigraph” from @BCCI and Sachin.
Simply tweet an appreciative message for Sachin to the @BCCI handle with the #ThankYouSachin hashtag and you’ll receive back a momentous picture of our hero with a personalized note and digital autograph. Give it a try.
See you on the other side of history.
