This Sunday, in the midst of my usual channel switching session, I happened to catch a glimpse of Mandira Bedi doling out some advice to the Men in Blue for their upcoming WC campaign and I didn't think twice before tweeting about my displeasure. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined what was about to transpire in the next few minutes. The following tweetexchange gave me a chance to interact with one of my oldest childhood crushes. Thank you Twitter!

And here's why it happened:

My only previous experience with critical tweeting was thus:

This particular tweet came in response to a self-hosted QnA session between SRK and his fans. Unfortunately for me, SRK was busy getting too many mentions on his timeline for him to get back at me with his famous wit. (something that I'm personally inspired by)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Mandira Bedi for igniting a fire within me. A fire to take The Social Network, in general and Twitter, in particular seriously. Special round of applause (with drumroll) for Mr. Jack Dorsey.
