- South Africans enjoy turning situations into jokes and recently held an election on Twitter
- The results were shared by popular app user and parody account @SciTheComedist (Jan Van Potgieter)
- With winners including Mr Handsome as Minister of Violence, SAns could not help but support it
South African Twitter is filled with trolling and jokes. Recently a "Twitter Election" was held on the social networking app. Popular Twitter users were voted in as random ministers and the results have just been released.
In a series of posts by parody account @SciTheComedist (Jan Van Potgieter), the new Twitter ministers and their titles were shared. From a Twitter president, Minister of Stealing all the way to a Minister of Appliances, tweeps now have it all.
Names such as Mr Smeg, Mr Handsome and even Tumi Sole were "honoured" with their own titles.
Briefly.co.za compiled all the tweets about the new cabinet along with some SA reactions. Take a look:

In other Twitter-related news, Briefly.co.za earlier reported on a viral image of a facial tattoo. This after a lady went viral for getting the name "Sphiwe" tattooed on her face.
The unknown woman looks quite happy in the image with the name tattooed across her cheek. The image went viral after it was shared to Twitter by popular app user and parody account, @AdvoBarryRoux.
While there has been much concern surrounding the odd tattoo choice, many SAns decided to troll the lady based on her decision.
