    Interesting this rejoinder. I read the first piece not with a lot of shaking of the head but some nods and ‘er..well’. While I understand the need to set records straight (I blog on social issues and do a whole lot of microblogging on issues of the moment) I think Mr Egbunike points are well taken. The “few” bloggers you speak of do have a large ffing. Their following could even be larger than that of all the other bloggers combined so I understand it seeming like these ‘blogotivists’ have taken over the entire digtal space, and their arrogance is to say the least legendary(Unconfirmed studies have shown that the larger your following the more arrogant you become). However, I do know of some who are more human and humane and who are willing to engage. At the final analysis, sieving the wheat from the weed is an action we all must take. As with even the traditional media, each message should be swallowed with a pinch of salt…or sometimes two. I should say thank you to you and to Mr Egbunike for bringing these issues up for discuss.

    Brilliant! I love the fact that this rejoinder focused solely on the issues raised by the other author who probably had an unfavourable encounter with one or two social media activists and erroneously generalized. Well done.

    Unverified studies have shown that the more followers you have on twitter, the harder it is to engage everyone.
