Twitterati discuss Salman Khan and world without Internet
Ever since Salman Khan started trending on micro-blogging website Twitter because of the homicide charge, some very interesting observations are coming forth. Ramesh Srivats, using the handle @rameshsrivats, the one who manages to sit right at the top of top tweets of almost everything that trends on Twitter, wrote: 'Courts have given him a month, enough time for him to drive slowly & reach safely.'

JudiciaryNews using the handle @JudiciaryNews informed that Salman drove at 100 kmph despite driver's warning. IBTL using the handle @IndiaBTL pointed out the delays associated with judicial system in India: 11 years for the judiciary to decide that a case should be framed against him.

IndiaSpeaks using the handle @IndiaSpeaksPR was of the view that the only thing slower than Uttarakhand Government in India was the judiciary. Rohit Pradhan using @Retributions reminded us that even this decision can be appealed against.

Madhavan Narayanan using the handle @madversity was rather more creative and came up with a title of the next film starring Sallu Bhai & Sanju Baba together - Salakhein. AbsoluteAbsonant using @abhigyantweets had a more interesting twist to it: someone's waiting to give Sallu bhai a 'jadu ki jhappi' in there.

Another interesting trend at the top of the trending list was #BeforeTheInternet. It presented some interesting facets about life before we had the worldwide web. ClassicPics (@History_Pics) posted a beautiful black and white picture of pigeons fitted with cameras which were used in early 1900s before Google Earth came into being.

Bhak Sala (@bhak_sala) tweeted: “Indians were more concerned about Kargil and Ayodhya than Palestine or Greece.” Surajit Dasgupta (@SurajitDasgupta) rued that there were things like inland letters, postcards and handwriting before the Internet came in. Sorabh Pant (@hankypanty) reminded people about the recent death of an old service - before the Internet, Twitter was a paid offline service called Telegram. Gautam (@gautamverma23) had an interesting observation - people used to fall in love at the first sight, now they fall in love at the first site.

Swami Go. Ab Earn (@justicearnab) had the maximum number of top tweets on this trend. According to him, before the Internet, the corner paan shop was used as Google Maps and we clicked photos for family album and not for Facebook. He also took a dig at engineering and management students - these used to be tough courses. Keh Ke Peheno (@coolfunnytshirt), a very active Twitterati, had a very interesting but true point - before the Internet, our siblings used to be our biggest trolls. Purba Ray (@Purba_Ray) summed it up by saying that before Internet came in, the voices in our heads were not called tweets.
