30 of the Best #Braailyrics Tweets for National Braai Day

As Heritage Day 2010 nears its end in South Africa I want to feature some #Braailyrics tweets that have been floating around the popular micro-blogging service Twitter today. It seems that National Braai Day 2010 was a complete success. Many South Africans sent tweets and photos via Twitter keeping their followers updated throughout the day.

National Braai Day has certainly become a countrywide institution in South Africa and it’s definately not limited to one age group or one ethnic group. My #Braaimovies Tweets post has been extremely popular today. I want to thank all those who read it and spread the word. I’m glad the post spread smiles accross the faces who read it.


I promised some readers that I will be doing a follow up post about #Braailyrics, so this is it. These tweets solidifies the fact that creativity is alive and well in South Africa.

Here are 30 of the Best #Braailyrics tweets that I saw over the last 24 hours

    Yet another legendary list.
    My latest contribution:

    “Ooh baby baby it’s a braai world, it’s hard to get by just with a slaai girl” #braailyrics

    I freaking love BRAAIDAG! And not only for the awsum tweets 🙂

    So what’s the next publicly celebrate-able day for which we can create awsum tweets?

    PicknPay is a client of ours at AquaOnline, we put together a Facebook campaign for braai day, and #braailyrics was one of our spin-offs to engage twitter users. It’s been very rewarding knowing we are engaging users. It’s better than the usual prize hook. Adam Brandt – Creative Director.

      Adam: The response on Twitter was absolutely amazing. Just shows you that Twitter is alive and well in South Africa 🙂
