Legendary wicketkeeper-batter MS Dhoni has recently shared which is his favourite social media platform. However, he has always been away from it and also he has maintained a low-key profile on these platforms as well. Recently, he opined on his less active digital presence. As the IPL 2024 season is near to a close, speculations were rising that this could be Dhoni’s last season with CSK.

“I prefer Instagram over Twitter. Twitter, I believe that nothing good has happened over Twitter. You know, especially in India, there is always a controversy. Somebody will write something, and it turns into a controversy. I was like, you know, why do I need to be there? You know, it used to be 140 characters. You cannot elaborate. Imagine me putting something over there, and then it is left up to the people to read it, and they just interpret what they want to interpret,” said Dhoni on the Dubai Eye 103.8 YouTube channel.

“So, I’m like, no, no, that’s not really for me. Instagram still, I like it because, you know, I could put up my picture or a video or something and just leave it. That is also changing now. So I still prefer Instagram, but I am not very active because, I don’t know, I feel, you know, less distractions are better, but in between, on and off, I will put something for the fans, you know, so that they know, okay, I am somewhere good, you know, in good hands. So I am doing what I like,” he added.
