#TwitterWasLitBefore remembers the good ol’ 140 character days

Don’t look now folks, but according to the gatekeepers of South African Twitter, the social network just isn’t lit anymore.

I know. Shocking.

As if Monday wasn’t bad enough, the hashtag #twitterwaslitbefore began trending around midday, and served to remind everyone that things never stay the same.

This, according to some, is thanks to MTN and Vodacom.

Those who joined Twitter to become “comedians and savages” were also outed. Tweet-stealers were given special mention by a few.

If Facebook users hadn’t had a tough enough 2018 thus far, they were also blamed for dulling Twitter’s shine.

While others remembered the good times, when tweets were brief.

Is this the most important discussion on South African internet today? Probably not. But is it a necessary conversation we all should be having within out homes and schools? Absolutely.

Do you believe that Twitter is still lit? Drop us a mention @memeburn.
