Former South African Reserve Bank Governor, Tito Mboweni – who signs off most of his tweets at @tito_mboweni as “Gov” (for Governor, I think) – has been his unusual self of late, throwing criticism on Twitter and on newspaper articles. What’s up Gov?
In early May 2011 I noticed that President Jacob Zuma had a twitter account. Given the experiences of former ANCYL President Julius Malema and many others who claimed spoof Twitter accounts were opened under their names, I didn’t want to take chances.
As many as 70 million Blackberry Mamas and Papas out there spent their uncomfortable blackberryless three days without any BBMs [Blackberry Messenger], Nokia Papas and Mamas were enjoying ourselves, tweeting and Facebooking such that I almost heard my right-hand thumb saying “ouch”.
Like Julius Malema who said stuff and sang songs that are likely cost him his position as President of the ruling African National Congress Youth League – Mark Esterhuysen, too, did the same when he was swearing away his job as a newsreader at Primedia’s Radio702. This must have taken guts, courage and planning.
