Joburg be twerking?

2013-11-18 11:32
Cape Town - After an earth tremor was felt in parts of Johannesburg, a number of people took to social media to share their experiences.

The City of Johannesburg tweeted that an earth tremor had been experienced.

We asked our Johannesburg Twitter followers if they had felt the earth move.

Some were truly shaken.

But many bounced back quickly and made some light-hearted comments about the earth tremor. Here are some of the ones that had us LOLing.

One man was just going about his, er, personal business when the tremor struck.

To which Razeen responded:

Some thought that the City of Joburg may have been shaking it to a Miley Cyrus number.

Perhaps it wasn't twerking, but a sign from Eminem...

This guy thought he was feeling the after effects of his weekend.

The residents are determined to clean up the damage the tremor caused.

One resident hoped for positive outcomes.

And, of course, no SA news event is complete without blaming Julius Malema.

- Did you experience the tremor? Send us your stories and photos.
