The fifth most famous tweet has come from Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who had tweeted joking that it was a good decision for him to take up wicket keeping instead of bowling, after watching Gayle s relentless onslaught in a T20 match. Chris Gayle had made a breathtaking world record score of 175 off 66 balls. Dhoni (@msdhoni) tweeted, Life is all about taking the right decision, seeing Gayle bat today I think I took the right decision of being a wicket keeper.
Modi s tweet has surpassed Sachin Tendulkar s thank you tweet and megastar Rajnikanth s very first tweet, which have been listed among the top retweeted tweets in India.
Narendra Modi had posted this tweet to acknowledge BJP s victory in Lok Sabha Elections 2014. BJP is leading on 336 seats whereas the Congress has come down to merely 59 seats. BJP has become the only party to have won with such a majority since 1977 elections.
