Dhoni’s thoughts on Twitter

“I prefer Instagram over Twitter,” said Dhoni. Twitter, I believe that nothing good happens on Twitter. You know, especially in India, there’s always controversy. Someone will write something and it becomes an argument. I thought, you know, why do I need to be there? You know, it used to be 140 characters. You cannot explain in detail. Imagine I put something there, then let people read it and they just interpret what they want to interpret.”

Dhoni likes Instagram for its simplicity

Dhoni also mentioned that he likes to maintain a low profile on Instagram, and appreciates the platform’s ability to share photos and videos without much scrutiny. Despite this, he still posts updates for his fans from time to time.

“So I thought, no, no, that’s not really for me. Instagram is still the same, I like it because, you know, I can post my photo or video or something and just leave it at that. That is also changing now. So I still prefer Instagram, but I’m not as active because, I don’t know, I feel like, you know, less distractions is better, but in between, on and off, what am I going to post that for the fans, you know, so they know, okay, I’m in a good place, you know, in good hands. So I’m doing what I like,” he added.
