30 of the Best #JujuFriday & #WWJT Tweets

This past Friday was Juju Friday on the popular micro-blogging service Twitter. This was the result of the ANCYL (ANC Youth League) calling for the “closer of Twitter” a while ago. Juju Friday saw thousands of South Africans using social networking / media zones poking fun at ANC youth league leader Julius Malema. This saw #JujuFriday trending worldwide as the Malema parody kicked off. The ANC Youth League has refused to comment on Twitter’s JuJu Friday phenomenon, saying it has more important issues to deal with (according to Eyewitness News). Users of Facebook and Twitter were encouraged to change their profile pictures and made Malema their face for the day on Friday. Many of them took these calls seriously and scores of pictures of the ANC Youth League leader were seen on both Twitter and Facebook on Friday. I closely watched this phenomenon unfold on Twitter on Friday. Today’s blog post in the Technology category on Running Wolf’s Rant contains a list of the 30 best Tweets sent with the #JujuFriday and #WWJT (What would Julius Tweet) hashtags on Twitter.

If you’ve found other interesting tweets on these subjects, please comment on this post. #JujuFriday & #WWJT has proven that Social Media is alive and well in South Africa, even though it only represents a very small part of the South Africa population. For those of you who still think that Social Media is a fluke, watch the Social Media Revolution and Social Media Revolution 2 videos and think again. 2010 has truly been an interesting year for social networking in South Africa.
