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:
Tell me how it is that Twitter stops working all over the country for the duration of the speech? #MmusiOnRace

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