Password: "twitter"


Started by Eve Dmochowska - continued by South African Twitterers.



This is a wiki page to try and track how many (and which) South Africans are using Twitter.

How it works:


  1. If you are South African - and use Twitter - please add your name and details below. (If you live outside of SA, please tell us where!)
  2. Tweet about the page, thus letting all your followers know about it
  3. Hopefully, your South African followers will visit here, and follow step 1 and 2.
  4. The "six degrees of separation theory" should result in a large chunk os South African twitterers being listed here.


If you have blogged about the Xenophobia Issue, Please see the following Post and add your name.:



I am doing an analysis of the Impact that social media (Blogs & twitter ) had on the Xenophobia Issue.




See if your blogpost is included on the list & Update with your twitter username: http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pTD3FWar02UT7peKMx1YXSg
