Kenya’s President Quits Twitter, Gives Reasons

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has deactivated his personal twitter account saying he would rather talk to his wife and sleep.

The president also cited insults as his reason for quitting the social media application.

Mr Kenyatta on Wednesday said he would get angered by the insults on Twitter and couldn’t sleep.

“I would rather talk to my wife and sleep and wake up in the morning to work,” he said in Swahili.

The head of state’s personal twitter account had more than three million followers but it was deactivated and his administration now uses a State House account, which has around one million followers.

The communication team did not at the time reveal the reason for deactivating the president’s account.

Kenyans on Twitter are known for expressing themselves on the platform often leading to online fights with tweeters from other countries.
