AgangSA on tweets: There's no polite way to say it

2014-03-31 14:10
AgangSA
Bloemfontein - AgangSA confirmed that their social profile on Twitter wasn't hacked and that the party was responsible for all the tweets.

The party trended on the social network after tweeting memes of government officials, comparing President Zuma to rapper Drake, and various other obscure tweets as described by some on the network.

Communications Director to the party, Mark Peach, confirmed telephonically that their account wasn't hacked. He said all the tweets were written in the official capacity of AgangSA and that it represented their views and position, especially on corruption.

"We're just telling it as it is. Corruption is taking us over the edge and there's no polite way to say anything about it," Peach said.

"So no, we weren't hacked."

Reaction to the tweets varied.

Jerry Elago tweeted "Whoever 'hacked' your twitter account is a keeper! Took social media politicking to a new level."

An official statement from the Communications Director of the party will follow soon.
