THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN TWITTER CEO MET SHAH RUKH KHAN

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who is in India, has been meeting important figures from the world. He met Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. But on Wednesday, Jack flew to Mumbai to rub shoulders with celebrities. And the first person he reached out to was Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most followed celebrities on Twitter. Recently, in a cleanup spree, many of the Indian celebrities lost a number of followers to name a few we can go with Amitabh Bachchan who now stands close to SRK. 

Jack took no time and wrote to SRK's Twiiter timeline to find out is he there or not.

“U up?” he tweeted at SRK, to which Shah Rukh had a cheeky reply. “Up and Ready. And shockingly on time...if anybody has warned u about my tardiness they r just spreading ‘fake news...’”

Jack’s next update came from the gates of Shah Rukh’s house, Mannat. Posting a picture from outside, Jack tweeted, “knock knock.”

Shah Rukh shared an image from their meeting, which showed them in a meditative pose. “Today @jack made me realise with his calm demeanour & composed, nearly meditative mindset...’that all Work and no Pray, would make Jack a dull boy.” Thx for dropping in & also team @Twitter for a lively evening. Have a happy stay in India,” SRK wrote.

A report says that the meeting took place shortly before Shah Rukh was scheduled to head off to Italy, where he will attend the second day of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s wedding at Lake Como. The couple was married in a traditional Konkani ceremony on Wednesday, now the two will marry with a Sindhi ceremony which will follow today.

Jack, on his India visit, has spoken about Twitter’s importance in the 2019 general elections. Addressing a town hall at Delhi’s IIT, Jack stressed the importance of curbing fake news on the platform. "The real problem is not misinformation per se as jokes can also be categorized as misinformation. But misinformation that is spread with the intent to mislead people is a real problem," he said. Jack also confirmed that plans for introducing an edit feature on Twitter are on, but they can’t rush into it.
