A Copywriter Turned Twitterite, Sagar Weaves Incredible Stories in 140 Characters
Be if Buzzfeed, Scoopwhoop or Storypick, they are in constant search of something spicy; they find it on social media. What better than Twitter would anyone find the gullible gossips across the globe? Do you find it interesting too? We come across entrepreneurs and business leaders; they are creative and innovative. Let's talk about a solopreneur who has become popular on Twitter because of his ability to express his opinion in 140 characters. Yes, a Famous Twitterati has garnered a huge fan following because of his capability to fetch the audience's attention by propelling the words everyone wants to hear.
It feels so good when your Tweets are liked and shared despite being a common man. Express.
As a newbie, it was thrilling to even get 5 retweets on a tweet. These days, I usually receive messages from friends on Whatsapp that they saw my tweet in a Newspaper or on Television. It does feel nice. A nobody like me could voice his opinion and reach a huge number of people in just a few hours. Social media has empowered every Aam Aadmi (not just Arvind Kejriwal).
How did it all begin? I mean, a spark or a consistent effort? Or an effort after an ignition?
I was really impressed with some twitter handles. They could write hilarious stuff by just using 140 characters. So I tried my hand at it. Initially, I couldn't write so well, but then I observed how others did it and learned the art of being funny using minimum words. Being a Marwari, I knew how to use minimum resources for maximum impact ;)
How do you come up with the 'Joke sides of any real news? Are you a copywriter?
That's a nice guess, I must say. Back in 2012-13, I used to be a copywriter for few months, but I failed miserably there. However, the lessons of creativity that I learned in copywriting help me write my tweets and generate ideas whenever I want. Making jokes on topical issues requires you to be updated with the latest news and pop-culture. Then, you have to make connections to derive humor out of the news.
You know you can be hired by @aib or @eic @tvf one odd day and your life will be changed. Right?
I look after a business, I don't think I will ever be a permanent part of any comedy group. As I said before, I already write jokes for some stand-up comedians, but only as a freelancer.

Initially, it was an escape from the world. Now, it is the world I live in.
We learned enough about him, his laziness and his creativity. His story is simply smart, what's yours?
