Islamabad: The scion of the Bhutto family, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has turned 25 and is now eligible to contest parliamentary polls in the Pakistan.

Even while the million dollar question remains whether he will jump into the murky world of politics now or he will bide his time till the 2018 general election, Bilawal continues to remain active on the social media and is constantly in touch with people.

An avid Twitterati, he gets into passionate debates with supporters and critics on the popular social networking site.
"Watch out trolls HYPERLINK
"https://twitter.Com/BBhuttoZardari"@BBhuttoZardari on twitter and kicking... (fill in the blanks)," his sister Aseefa Bhutto Zardari tweeted as Bilawal literally got into a slang match with another Twitterati who was firing on all ranges.

Bilawal, who turned 25 yesterday, has completed his graduation in Contemporary History and International Politics from the Oxford University and is reported to be learning the Urdu and Sindhi languages while spending time in London and Dubai.

Bilawal had not headed the May election campaign despite calls from the PPP candidates, especially in Punjab, to address their rallies, triggering rumours that he had developed differences with his father and aunt Faryal Talpur over running the party affairs.

The PPP had denied such differences and had said he was away due to security reasons.
From posting pictures of his dogs to time out with friends, Bilawal seems to have taken on the social networking site as a platform to air his views.

He also tweets on controversial issues without fear.
"I support jihad as stated in Quran. I believe SMBB was fighting greater Jihad by raising voice vs Taliban +TyrantDictatorMush," he said in response to a question.
Unlike most politicians, he also retweets his critics` comments and also engages with them.
In reply to a birthday wish, he tweeted, "Not silver platter HYPERLINK "https://twitter.Com/adilraza"@adilraza. More like blood soaked poison chalice. But thank u 4 the b`day wishes."
