Social media is a source of endless fun. Not only can we connect with friends and family, but we also connect with the different services and companies we were once so far away from. WeatherSA proved this to be true after they shared a hilarious response to a tweep's jab.
The Twitter user, @Sentletse, took to the app to poke fun at the weather service after their prediction of heavy storms seemed to be slightly amiss. In his tweet, he shared a picture of a 'gun' thermometer and wrote that the weather service used the device to do forecasts.
The South African weather service in turn responded to his tweet with a hilarious picture of a man wearing a leather mask through which he obviously cannot breathe with the caption, "Can’t breathe."
Twitter users who had been watching the entire thing unfold from their timelines shared their thoughts in the comments section. Below are some of their comments.
"Gotta love this app sometimes."
@tshidi_lee in response to WeatherSA wrote:
"But friend you lied to us about thunderstorms? I trust your readings but yesterday... nooo".
"The warning was correct, the time was not correct. Storm hit this morning (from around 4am) complete with hail."
"I love Twitter!"
"The humour is too much."
Meanwhile, in other Briefly.co.za classic clapbacks, celebrities are no strangers to trolls who don't know their place. While most trolls achieve exactly what they were hoping to when they make nasty or snide remarks directed at celebs, this troll received nothing but a classy response.
Itu Khune recently took to Twitter to share a candid snap of himself. While the pic received thousands of reactions from his adoring fans, one troll decided to pass comment on Itu's looks - saying that he looked old.
Itu, who did not allow the snide remark to bother him, shared a very simple and quite classy response. While any other celeb may have become upset and cause some drama, Itu simply replied, "Can’t stay young forever."
