Nigerians! Let's talk about social networks

A few days ago I wrote a story called " I was listed on the Nigerian twitter". The story so happened to be a parody. I wanted people to understand the irony behind it. Few did, others didn't. Oh well ! It's quite unfortunate that we Nigerians are taking social networks, Twitter to be precised, as a medium to show off our stupidity in full glory. Indeed everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech, but that doesn't give you the right to act foolishly towards your fellow individuals. Ignorance is defined by those who observe fools dancing to the sound of nature. I want you to think. How would you feel if your daughter's sex tape was leaked by some random twitter dude ? (And the question remains: why would you, as a girl, let a guy record a sex tape of you. Are you a porn actress ? I mean what is the point of that ?) Ok, your partner has offended you. Understandable. You get angry and make treats. Understandable, we are all human. Sometimes feelings may overshadow good judgement. But  going to the extent of leaking the sex tape, for people who don't give a damn about you to see, goes beyond my comprehension. This is why I find it hard to trust guys.  Not just guys, I don't trust anybody. Be ye male or female. For the simple reason of humans being liable to betray one another. Sometimes men ask me for my BB pin/number in DM. I never give them out. Why because I had to learn to keep my personal life separate from my virtual life the hard way . Truth be told, on Twitter nobody gives a damn about you. The earlier you realize this, the better. Whatever starts on Twitter/Facebook ends there. Friendships and long distance relationships included. I have only kept a minimum of 4 people as " real friends".  I have my personal experiences with Twitter, good and bad.

I have made up 5 rules for myself when it comes to the Nigerian Community on social networks:

1) Thou shall not believe what has been told to thee.

2) Thou shall keep everybody on a long distance from thee until proven trustworthy.

3) Thou shall not work with people thou hast not set thine eyes upon.

4) Thou shall treat everyone equally and fairly. Fools are to be blocked and ignored.

5) Thou shall not let people get to thee. MBANU! Certainly people thou hast not set thine eyes upon.

Everybody is a nonentity on twitter, including  me. So let us respect and humble ourselves.
