A Tweep who called on the Twitter community for help soon turned nasty when people started questioning her motives and her request.
One matric pupil who is too poor to even afford a school bag sent a request out on Twitter and got the see Tweep heroes in action… until they started asking questions, and then things got nasty.
In her post she said:
Hello, Twitter people. My name is Esihle. I'm doing matric, i stay in a shack with my grandmother and my 2 little sisters. We dependent on my granny's pension money. I carry my books with a Shoprite plastic bag because i can't afford a nice bag pack. And it is so embarrassing.
She also posted some pictures of her books in the shopping packet.
Tweeps were spurred to action and responded.
However, some Tweeps were sceptical of the request.
And she didn’t seem to appreciate their questions and things soon got nasty…
And so it continued.
Not so long ago Briefly.co.za reported how one man had called on Tweeps to help him land a date with the girl of his dreams.
@Msay_team033rd asked his crush, Toni Nkhahle, how many retweets he needed for her to be convinced to give him a chance and to go on a date.
Nkhahle responded, saying that if the man swooning over her received 50 000 retweets on Twitter, she would go on a date with him.
