The twitter world is quite a busy one, and Bollywood contributes a great deal to it. Here's looking at the best star tweets of the day.
Stars celebrated Children's Day on November 14 in their own style.
Priyanka Chopra wished her followers and tweeted, 'Here's wishing everyone a very happy children's day... We all have a child within us.. I know I do! Even tho mine is a bit mad!! Hehe!'
In Miss India style, Dia Mirza tweeted, 'May we never cease to ask questions,be bewildered,play,laugh,be filled with enthusiasm and be free. My wish 4 evry child evn d 1 within me.'
Sonakshi Sinha tweeted a picture which was a blast from the past, 'The twins and I with the father. Happy Baal-diwas.'
Likewise Konkana Sen Sharma got nostalgic as she messaged, '#WhenIWasAKid We used to get 5 phuchkas (gol gappas) for a rupee.'
Director Shekhar Kapur was overwhelmed. He tweeted, 'thank u all for the hundreds of messages for masoom n mr india, i am overwhelmed n did not know the effect these films had.' Earlier the director published his plea. 'the child in all of us is alive n creative, but needs to be both nurtured n cared for, the loss if innocence is corruption. Lets dedicate this children's day to millions of kids that will not survive the callousness of our govt and society.'

It all began with Neil Nitin Mukesh tweeting, 'Got the day off in goa. With my father at baga beach @ britto's. Great to see so many kids here :D. Lovely weather. Awesome place great food.'
Sonam Kapoor followed suit by saying, 'Eaten so so much at mums kitchen in goa!! Nothing beats goan food '
To which Bachchan Jr tweeted to both of them in his serious avatar, 'Will the 2 of you stop eating and get serious about your work please!! Start starving like the rest of us!! Believe sikandar is at martins corner.... These children are out of control!!'
Neil Nitin Mukesh replied back emotionally, 'when I have a big brother like you I know you won't let me! So please work harder than you already do for us :D' So did Sonam who said, 'your just jealous!! Bwahhahahahahaha!!!
Bachchan Junior promptly replied back, 'jealous?? We'll discuss that when you see the rushes and both of you will be looking like the house we're shooting in!'
Of course Neil sulked, and said, ':( ok this is what u give us on children's day. Fine we will :(' and Sonam asked for help, 'I've eaten the whole of mums kitchen and now you gotta lift me.. :-)'

Nobody does PR like the stars and directors themselves. And director Farah Khan's learnt from her best bud Karan Johar how to pitch her new movie. She gave us a tweet-by-tweet account on Sunday about her TMK launch. Here's the truth from the director's Blackberry.

Chopra gets Chatty!
Not that Priyanka Chopra is a quiet girl on twitter - her fans will agree with that. But it's been a while since we caught her in a chatty and chirpy mood. This weekend, the actor was in great spirits!
She tweets some of her pics, 'Feeling grateful. Airplanes by b.o.b. AwesomeNess..'
And then this introspective one, 'Sitting in my van while waiting to be called for my shot. Admiring the warmth of the sun.
Of course a naughty tweet picture too as she caught her make up artist unaware. 'Meanwhile my make up artist anil chinappa catches some zzzzzs.Hell kill me if He knew i posted this. Haha'
The actor also cleared some air. 'What is all this rubbish talk about me gettin married! Pun-lease!! Not even close.. And hell-oo! There has to be SOMEONE to marry also na??!'
And then did her usual shoutout to her family and friends. 'Here is wishing my Bhaiya @irfan525 a super duper birthday.. Wish I was there baiiiyyyaaaa!! Hope u find ur path this year! Love u hamesha!!My condolences go out to my dost and amazing artist @jaysean ! I know how it is to lose a grandparent..wishing u n ur family courage.'
Not to miss out on some good friendly vibes to her co-star Sahil Shroff too. "Hey hey.. Huge shoutout to my co actor and dost from don 2 @sahilshroff !! Show him some luuuuvvv!!' Should a certain Mr Shahid be worried?
