Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam has sent out a series of 24 tweets building up to his exit from Twitter. He asked the media and his followers to take screenshots of his tweets as the messages will soon disappear when he leaves the website.
Before quitting, he talked about how actor Paresh Rawal and singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya are being trolled on social media for sharing their controversial views on Twitter.

Paresh Rawal recently wrote in a tweet that acclaimed author Arundhati Roy be tied to an army jeep, suggesting she be used as a shield in a manner similar to the way a man was used in Kashmir last month.
“Instead of tying stone pelter on the army jeep tie Arundhati Roy!” the Lok Sabha member from Gujarat tweeted late on Sunday. It wasn’t clear what context he was speaking in. Twitter authorities later made him delete his tweet.
