After Telugu star Pawan Kalyan joined Twitter and took the Tollywood audience by storm, people are eager to see if Tamil actor Ajith Kumar follows Kalyan's footsteps.

They say "what Pawan Kalyan is for Telugu, Ajith Kumar is for Tamil." In the sense, both actors enjoy huge fan following online, especially among the younger generation. So, it is obvious that now people are expecting their favourite star to enter the micro-blogging site. 

Pawan Kalyan joined Twitter on 1 January and his opening post read: "Wishing you all a very Happy New Year !Peace and Good Health." In no time, it generated a huge buzz on the site, with his fans gave him a thunderous reception.

His arrival also made his fans trend various topics on Twitter. In less than 72 hours, he had more than one lakh followers. Now, people want Ajith to join Twitter and have a similar experience.

Ajith is a hot topic on Twitter. His fans often keep trending topics relating to him or his films. In the past few months, they set trends on Twitter at least on five occasions.

This clearly shows that he is a highly sought-after actor on the social networking site and like Pawan Kalyan, he too can receive an overwhelming response once he joins Twitter.

More importantly, Ajith, who is getting ready for his next movie "Yennai Arindhaal" release, does not promote his films or give interviews to the electronic media. So, Twitter can be the perfect medium for him to communicate with fans and open up about his professional life. 

Among his contemporaries in Kollywood, 'Ilayathalapathy' Vijay occasionally chats with his fans on his Twitter account, which is handled by his fans' club.
