Sonu Nigam quits Twitter, but Twitterati doesn't seem to care much

After Abhijeet Bhattacharya was suspended from Twitter, Sonu Nigam quits platform.

sony-nigam-facebook-twitter

Twitter has had a dramatic day today. The Ole Ole and Mere Khayalon ki Malika fame singer, Abhijeet Bhattacharya was suspended from Twitter for posting a string of offensive tweets, many of which were directed against women. While that was happening, some hours ago, Sonu Nigam (hum Kal Ho Na Ho songs) quit Twitter, rueing its lack of balanced decisions. Nigam shared his decision of quitting the platform in a series of 24 tweets, which have disappeared now that his account has been deactivated. The singer says that Twitter is a great platform, but has become a place where everyone expresses their anger instead of discussing issues. He is all for a balanced approach, he said. In one of those 24 tweets, he said that he can no longer stay connected to a place where venom is spewed with relish.” Also Read - Twitter hits 211 mn daily users, defies Apple privacy changes

Nigam has, however, put in a disclaimer saying he might return to Twitter in the future — never say never , he says – and that if a new platform with some filter emerges, he would be totally owning it. However, what s really interesting is that many people are pointing out the timing of Nigam quitting the platform, where many say the move was to show support to Bhattacharya. But the reason he lists hint at a different issue altogether.

MidDay managed to get a text of all the tweets that he sent out before he deactivated his account, below are as they read. ALSO READ: The Bad, The Worse and The Worst of Social Media

“1 Hello Press, Twitteratis, Tweeples and Tweetios, get ready to take screen shots of my following messages for they won’t remain here 4 long

2 I bid adieu to Twitter and my close to 7 Million followers today, leaving most Disappointed and angry at me, and some Sadists Happy.

3 I have come to understand that “You can wake up someone who’s sleeping, but can not wake up one who’s pretending to sleep when he’s awake”

4 Media, is divided. Some Nationalists, some just Cold blooded Pseudos not ready to learn from our History of Traitors.

5 Hv seen Love Pouring in from Most Quarters 4 my Balanced approach; & unreasonable, illogical, ruthless, Profanities being hurled frm other

6 People blessing you on one hand; and some wishing Death upon you. Even some young Girls and Boys and Kids behave like terrorists.

7 A woman can endorse a picture of Gautam Gambhir in the front of the Army Jeep, & Paresh Rawal, Criticized for doing d same to someone else

8 Accepted Arundhati has d right to her opinion about Kashmir, but then the other billion Indians have the right to feel Let Down too right?

9 And we have stopped being Humans. We are nothing beyond Proud Muslims, Hindus, Pakistanis, Indians.Gosh.Such arrogance 4 being so stupid?

10 One Could disagree wth Abhijeetda’s language but isn’t Shehla’s accusation tht BJP has a Sex Racket, Provocation enough to Supporters?

11 If His account is deleted, why not Her? And the other Morons who hurl Mother Sister abuses to every Achiever?

12 Where’s the Balance? How is it all so one sided? Why is everyone so Angry here on Twitter? Why can’t there be a Sensible discussion?

13 It only goes to prove that most humans, cannot digest power when it comes to them unchecked. They need Reins to hold them back.

14 I have nothing against Twitter, it’s a Game Changer. Yet Twitter cud have been a Greater Platform. It’s like Porn, shown in Theatres.

15 I quit Twitter Today in Defiance of this One Sided Sham. Every Logical, Sensible Patriot and Humanist should.

16 I am sorry I don’t belong to a place which spews so much Venom with such Relish! A place that taints me Anti Muslim in some losers’ minds

17 I have no Religion. I follow my own religion choosing d Best from everywhere. Those who understand, know; those who don’t, my condolences

18 I don’t belong 2 a place whr sm Pseudo Intellectuals actually turn a Blind Eye to d Unprecedented slap I gave 2 d Fatva proclaimers on me

19 I am no Right Wing, No Left Wing. I respect everyone’s Opinion but I guess Here, you have to Belong Somewhere.

20 I hope I never need to return here to Clarify, but I never say Never! At this point, my Pious life, needs to Declutter.

21 I don’t know what will be made out of these Threads of mine, and what new Controversy I’ll get in2, but this shud b d last due 2 Twitter.

22 And if there’s a Newer Platform with some Filter, I’d be Owning it! We’ll see each other there. Goodbye till then 6.5 Millions.

23 B.P.S People getting married? U can actually know d entire Psychology & Class of a Partner by just going through his Twitter Time line

24 Shall Delete d account in a bit so the messages are conveyed clearly and with Utmost Humility and Good Intent. Thanks Twitter. (sic)”
