Jacob Zuma on Twitter and internet nearly shatters

Former president Jacob Zuma may well on his way to breaking the internet after joining Twitter.

He posted his first tweet just after 9am but 15 minutes later he had already reached over a 1000 followers. He is not following anyone as yet.

His first post was a video of himself sitting in front of an elegant piano, wearing a silk Madiba-style shirt.

With his signature broad smile on his file and facing the camera he says: “Hallo everyone I have decided to move with the times to join this important area of conversation because I hear that many people are talking about me and others are calling themselves Zuma in many ways.

“I felt it necessary that I must join in and be part of the conversation and join the people in their discussion.

It’s me, former President Jacob Zuma,”  he ends the 44 second long video.Link

The first person to respond to the tweet was Tony Yengeni who tweeted, “Ok..Nxamalala masizwe!”

Others, like @mrschahgondwcould not hide their excitement at having the former president joining Twitter.

She tweeted: Awwww. Welcome my number one . U just made my morning. ”

EFF president also welcomed Zuma with a simple: “Welcome Baba”.
