It is very rarely that one does not listen to Sachin Tendulkar s request. Tendulkar in a tweet had urged social media giant, Twitter to shut down fake accounts of his son Arjun Tendulkar and daughter Sara Tendulkar s that were doing the round on the web.

Twitter swiftly got into the groove and suspended both handles by Tuesday afternoon. Sachin on Monday evening post a sting of tweets asking Twitter to take down fake handles. In 2014, Sachin in an Facebook post had verified that Sara and Arjun are not on Twitter.

This all transpired after fake accounts of Sara and Arjun posted tweets criticising Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, Sharad Pawar. Sachin had to ultimately dive in and control the whole wrong identity fiasco.
