The unthinkable happened when the Twitter account of superstar Rajinikanth was hacked on Tuesday.
The incident was distinguished due to some “unusual activity” on Rajinikanth’s account, which was any activity at all.
On Tuesday, a tweet was posted through Rajinikanth’s account that said “Rajinikanth #HitToKill”. The superstar has only posted 29 tweets ever since he joined Twitter back in February 2013.
Rajinikanth’s daughter, Soundarya, confirmed the suspicions of a hack through a tweet.

The account was later recovered and the tweet has now been removed.
The hacker also used the account to follow some other celebrities including Kamal Hassan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Pa Ranjith, the director of Kabali but, they were immediately unfollowed after the account was retrieved.
