Twitter is apparently where it’s at. This is where the in crowd gets together and discusses matters of national importance like what is happening at the Art Caffe and whether or not Kenyans living in Uganda can be defined as diaspora folk. So yeah, pretty important stuff. A defining feature of this whole experience is the tweef i.e. the twitter beef for those unfamiliar with twitter lingo among the twitterati. Wow. I feel so sad for writing that whole sentence.
So one of the most interesting tweefs this year has been between our armed forces (KDF) and the AlShabaab where we watched the war on terror across to the cyberspace. Here is a look at how it unfolded. None of the words have been changed. This is EXACTLY HOW IT HAPPENED. Word for word.
Al Shabaab just joined twitter.
Al Shabaab is now following KDF.
Al Shabaab: @KDF I hear you’ve been talking trash.Now say it to my face…err avi.
KDF: @AlShabaab We will smoke you out of your caves to win this war.#OperationLindaNchi
AlShabaab: @KDF What’s wrong with you?#TeamFollowBack
KDF is now following AlShabaab.
KDF: @Alshabaab now we are following you on two fronts.#Coincidence
Alshabaab: Seriously dude.What did we ever do to you? @Yenyewe what’s the bile?
Yenyewe: @AlShabaab what are you on about?Don’t know you. @KDF I don’t know them.
KDF: @Yenyewe could you please DM your details. #NoNeedToWorry
AlShabaab: @Yenyewe Oh so that’s how it is? @KDF Where are you?We need to finish this.
KDF: @AlShabaab We have you surrounded in Liboi.Our planes will start bombing soon.

Baibyeve: You all did. @KDF & @AlShabaab are regulars.They both call me #The Warzone.
KDF: Well either way you look at it, Kenya has won the war. @AlShabaab we’re done.
