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. 

    Tell me about you. A Twitter Celeb. Who are you? Because now, I have found you but I won't kill you.😂😂 + A snapshots of your gone life, current Zindagi and aanewale Days!

    Hi. My name is Sagar. I am 27, a Marwari and hence a businessman. In my spare time, I write articles for leading satire websites of India and sometimes I write jokes for stand-up comedians. (That is true, I do get paid for writing jokes. Jealous?)

    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.

    A bit of rapid fire because everyone wants to know 😅😎

    Who would you be if you are omnipotent? What would you do?

    What is Twitter for you?

    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?
