Coincidence?

DA leader Mmusi Maimane makes “a keynote speech” on Race and Identity in his party and in South Africa, and suddenly Twitter is “mysteriously” unavailable?

Could it be that the ANC have blocked access so that no-one was able to hear or engage with this landmark address?

Probably not, to be honest.

UPDATE: Still, the fact that this was a worldwide outage hasn’t stopped some people (namely Mmusi’s wife) from thinking the worst:

Do you really think they’re that bothered? Really?
Eish. Bit of a stretch.

    I thought maybe the DA arranged it to avoid backlash!

    Can’t decide if I’m happy or sad to have missed all the commentary

  • Leigh > You’re lucky, that’s what you are. 🙂

    Thought the Madam had crashed twitter when she got a copy of the speech 1 hour before…

  • Bloubergman > Well, no-one knows what he said now anyway.

    Or cares.
