Friends, it’s a beautiful weekend once again, and on our roundup today we will start by gisting about the hottest topic this week. I’m talking about the outrage that happened on social media after news surfaced that an aircraft passenger had asked a whole Prof. Soyinka to vacate his seat.
This was how angry Nigerians felt about the mata, as if they should catch the young man and beat him for disrespecting Prof. Wole Soyinka.
This was the message that triggered it:
Nigerian Politician Femi Fani Kayode quickly took to social media to call out the young man for asking Wole Soyinka, a Nobel laureate and well respected Prof, to vacate a seat for him on the plane.
But it was not all gbas and gbos. Some Nigerians applauded the young man and also said they would do the same if they were in his shoes.
Hmm. If you board a plane and find Wole Soyinka in your booked seat, what would you do?
#TakeTwitterBack: Twitter users agitate for sanity on TL
During the week, Twitter users took to their TL to express concerns about the insanity that has taken over the app. They fondly remembered the good old days when it was filled with intellectuals.
They went ahead to protest that some accounts should be taken down.
But on the other hand, is taking twitter back the solution?
