Sachin Tendulkar’s tweet thanking people for the #ThankYouSachin messages on Twitter has now become the most retweeted tweet in India of all time, according to Twitter India. Though at the time of filing this article the tweet had been RT’d less than 6,000 times, it does not take into account people manually retweeting or quoting the tweet that is not accounted in the count that shows under the tweet. In all probability, Twitter India would be taking into account that count as well.

Tendulkar’s 200th and final test match has set Twitter abuzz with BCCI spearheading the #ThankYouSachin campaign as well as the Tendulkar’s digital autograph campaign, both of which have proved to be very popular among Indian Twitter users.
Yet, Twitter in India has a long way to go, if one considers the most retweeted tweet of all time belongs to Barrack Obama which has been retweeted almost 800,000 times.
