    Guys, We Need To Talk About Amitabh Bachchan's Hilariously Self-Obsessed Twitter Account

    #SelfLoveGoals

    Being the second-most followed Indian on Twitter, Amitabh Bachchan is quite active with his daily updates.

    The legend is only a couple of million behind PM Narendra Modi.

    But in the past year or so, there's been a curious development in Bachchan's tweets...

    T 2474 - The 'yellow' yells ... YEEEAAAOOOOWWWLLLLLLLLL WWWOOWWW !!

    The man seems to be unable to post anything without uploading his own photo alongside it.

    T 2382 - #PINK the incredible attention it is getting is phenomenal .. attention plus immense praise .. immense love

    While it makes sense sometimes, about 95% of his photos have literally zero context.

    T 2508 - INDIA thrash the British .. !! Yuvraj, it is the champion that disproves with his proof .. you were an ex… https://t.co/8H7252KmMi

    Because it doesn't matter if the thing he's tweeting about has nothing to do with him, Bachchan uploads his face no matter what.

    T 2188 - @msdhoni many congratulations .. another great example of your leadership ! So much to learn from you !!

    He uploads his face when he's wishing another actor for an award win.

    T 2160 - FINALLY ..! Leonardo gets Best Actor at Oscars .. ! A considerate co star and a thorough gentleman !

    He uploads his face when he's posting an inspirational quote (that's not his own).

    T 2456 -" When you complain you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it, all… https://t.co/UyHuSIprI7

    He uploads his face when he's tweeting WhatsApp forwards.

    He uploads his face when he's in mourning.

    T 2457 - Pained beyond words at the loss of life of our jawans and officers at the border today .. prayers and sile… https://t.co/JYwq0w7X6b

    FFS the dude uploads his face even when he's just lodging a customer grievance against Samsung.

    T 2395 -I have Samsung Note 7. Battery charge restricted to 60%. When will it allow me to go 100 ? Mr Samsung pleas… https://t.co/V7n388RzRx

    The peculiar trait hasn't gone unnoticed, with Bachchan's love for his own photos becoming a hilarious punchline now.

    *Bacchan sahab searching boy for his grand daughter's marriage * Ladkewale : Photo bhejo *Bacchan sahab sends his own photo*

    Jaya B: Send Nudes Amitabh Bachchan:

    It's pretty much entered meme territory, at this point.

    *WhatsApp chat* Jaya: "You're so selfish. I'm not talking to you. Bye" BigB:

    In fact, fans just reply to him with their own faces now.

    Even if it is just to make a point.

    @kitAnurag @SrBachchan High time someone tells him, it's ok to tweet without a pic.

    To his credit, Bachchan has acknowledged the issue and refused to be shamed for loving himself.

    T 2390 - Many that come on this platform ask, why I put up only my pictures ? ANS : 'Because I want to .. !! Got a… https://t.co/VsTsJmgLgz

    You do you, Mr. B. You do you.
