The problem with South African Twitter right now

@TheAndrew40 nails it in two tweets:

Looking at twitter, is our thinking being informed by the opinions of quite a few not so credible media /media aligned individuals? Most of them are self-proclaimed (not actual journalists or intellectuals) and have built a “personal brand” on Twitter.

Absolutely. And I’m getting rather fed up of being told what I must think by a handful of people (and we can all easily name some names) whose opinions – despite their lofty beliefs and/or follower counts – are worth no more to anybody than mine are.
So: no, thank you.

We’d all do well to remember that these high and mighty individuals aren’t special. They must voetsek.



Wait. Unless he’s talking about me, of course.
