After implementing new policies surrounding manipulated media on its platform earlier this month, Twitter is now reportedly testing labels for misinformation from public figures…
After scrapping his original Twitter account, former South African president Jacob Zuma, has on Friday reemerged on the social network.
Tweeting under the handle @PresJGZuma, Zuma thanked Twitter for the “warm welcome” with a short clip explaining his intentions.
For one, he wishes to “move with the times” to join this “important area of conversation”. He also addressed the plethora of fake accounts using his name, as well as the people on the social network who are “talking about” him.
To be fair, if South African Twitter was lacking anything, it’s President Zuma’s clap backs.
With just two tweets credited to his new account thus far, Zuma has already amassed more than 36 000 followers in a little more than six hours.
