The Twitter page of Bollywood's King Khan, through which he interacts with his fans, turns five years old with 10.7 million followers. It was Shah Rukh's dear friend Karan Johar, who insisted that the superstar join the social media platform five years ago.

"Being extremely shy, I never thought I would be here (on Twitter). But my friend Karan Johar insisted that I should learn to share my life," read the first tweet by SRK on his Twitter page on 2 January 2010.

Soon, many of his fans started following him and SRK thanked them with yet another tweet. "Thanks everyone, this is really sweet...didn't expect such a warm welcome. Love to you all." 

Since then, SRK has posted 8,120 tweets, which includes some witty, cute and socially relevant tweets with the latest one that reads "Welcome to the battlefield #kurukshetra'15 @Flame University Pune! Don't miss it, an all India sports event. All the best."

Fans of the "Happy New Year" actor have also started celebrating five years of the superstar on Twitter with the hash tag #5YearsOfSRKonTwitter.
