Filmmaker Sajid Khan made his debut on Twitter on Thursday evening. The director of successful comedies such as 'Heyy Babyy!', 'Housefull', and 'Housefull 2', arrived on the microblogging site and started making jokes right away.
By Friday afternoon, he was trending at the number 3 spot in the country, but not for the reasons you'd think.
He started off like this.
If laughter is the best medicine...then this is your local chemist....will strive to put a smile on your face...

Khan's arrival evoked some strong, pent-up emotions. We're guessing his last movie, 'Humshakals', really touched a chord with audiences.

Sajid Khan is on Twitter.
Should have joined before Humshakals.
Would have helped him learn how to edit the number of characters.

Wow, it's almost as though he's more hated than Ram Gopa—wait.
Sajid Khan's joined Twitter. Nobody really cares. Except RGV, who's super happy to now be the second most hated Bollywood director here.

Well, okay. Yeah. Phew. This tweet below describes the situation rather well.
