The official Twitter account for the Presidency of South Africa suffered a major gaffe after the person manning it cursed the fact that they were missing a TV talent show.

The account administrator tweeted out a message expressing disappointment at the fact that it was missing the South African version of international hit reality TV singing contest Idols:

It then recanted, saying the tweet was down to an administrative error and had not come from the South African president Jacob Zuma, or the office of the presidency:

Some railed against the fact that the account was tweeting about such inconsequential matters:

Others took the tweet and its subsequent apology more light-heartedly:

Some even guessed at what had happened before the second tweet was sent out:

Not a good night to be the presidency’s Twitter account administrator then. Still, it could’ve been worse. The Durex kid could’ve been running the account.
