Twitter users have expressed their views and opinions on the controversial land reform debate. A great deal of the tweets have revolved around the release of a new book, 'The land is ours' which is where the hashtag originated.

The book is written by Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi. Some people have compared the book to Jacques Pauw's book about Jacob Zuma, 'The President's Keepers'.
