Uhuru Kenyatta requests that Elon Musk ban Kenyans under the age of 35 from Twitter.
Three years after Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta erased his Social Media accounts, the president now wants new Twitter owner Elon Musk to prohibit Kenyans under the age of 35 from suing the Social Media network.
In recounting his struggle at the hands of #KOT (Kenyans on Twitter) mercenaries, Uhuru said that KOT was not healthy for the nation’s mental health, therefore the necessity to control membership.
“I was an enthusiastic Twitter user until it began to affect my mental health.” Right, left, and center, I was offended.
Any tweet drew the wicked legions of KOT, making it difficult to connect with other heads of state. What about the average person if they can do this to a president?”
Uhuru said that he was not against people using social media, but he did want them to use some of the knowledge that comes with age. “People under the age of 35 are the worst on that site.”
They are unaware of our history and believe that everything is a meme. Some of them just have three followers, yet their insults stink to high heaven. These are the ones we must control. The resentment should be handled offline, and they will have the opportunity to return online when they reach the age of 35.”
Uhuru said that his administration has filed an official request to Twitter to deactivate any accounts with less than 35 followers, as well as those with fewer than 10 followers but a large number of impressions owing to insults and spamming messages.
When contacted, a Twitter official did not provide a direct response but said that Twitter is dedicated to free expression as well as compliance with both local and international legislation.
