- A young man was recently caught out in a big lie on his Twitter page about buying himself a new home
- After the man posted pictures of his alleged new home, a Twitter investigation team quickly called him out on his lie
- Many shared their thoughts on the fib, some of them expressing disappointment at the great lengths people go to for internet fame
A local man recently shared a heartwarming Twitter post about moving into his beautiful new home - only, it was not his home. The man with the Twitter handle @Shonny_RSA shared pics of the stunning apartment which he captioned:
"Just moved into my new home."
Not long thereafter, Twitter investigators had caught him out in the lie, sharing pictures of the place that was actually a lovely guesthouse in Polokwane that he was sadly trying to pass off as his "new home."
Locals had this to say about his attempt at getting internet fame:
"He has been caught."
"REALLY!! I stayed in this guesthouse for few months when I went to work in Polokwane. It was used as overflow accommodation for those booked in the hotel for prolonged stays. But for the love of peace in these Twitter streets, let me tool as well."
"Twitter will make you feel high and motivated. The next thing it's all fake and lies just for clout."
"This is no 66 Dorp Street, Polokwane and it’s a guesthouse."
"Aaaaaah this guy. This is theft. You won't get away with crap on these streets thanks to your investigation skills."

"I've been pursuing someone's daughter for a while now, so today she sent me this pic saying if I must get minimum 500 retweet and 2 500 likes by 31 January. Then February Sya-Jola." "I beg you my people, help me out please."
