Viral tweets just make Twitter utterly delightful; so we thought to curate our top 10 (there’s a bonus and then some) from last week. Some of the tweets will have you shedding a tear; others will make you bowl over with laughter; altogether they’ll give you an idea about what Twitter talked about during the week.
Another Down from Lassa Fever
Lassa Fever kills Female Resident Dr of Paediatrics of FMC Umuahia, Abia State.
She died in Irrua Specialist. The fight is still in. I will keep shaking this table. We Need Personal Protective Equipment or I won't touch anyone with symptoms.

Buha-reaching new lows
The Buhari Govt must not be allowed to get away with this consistent lowering of standards to such a point where it not only denies its own campaign manifesto but goes further to justify such foolishness as not initiating any new infrastructural projects as promised.

Downs Can’t Put Him Down
My brother went on his very first job interview today. He has grown so much I’m super proud of him. Even though he has down syndrome, he lets nothing get in his way. “I have downs but downs don’t have me.” pic.twitter.com/QJioDjBIbm

Cops Shooting Blacks ‘cos they can?
Police don’t murder black people because they mistake what’s in their hands for a gun. That headline is trash. Police carry guns for a living. They see guns every day. They know exactly what they look like. Police fatally shoot black people BECAUSE THEY GET AWAY WITH IT. Period.

Ezigbo Igbo, 101
Igbo is the people and the language.
Ibo is a nonsense, meaningless word , a corruption of the word ‘Igbo’ invented by the Slavetraders because of the lack ‘gb’ in the English alphabet, it was actually Eboe or Red Eboes , then ‘Ibo’.
Ibo has no meaning in Igbo Language. https://t.co/666SmxmKdF

Martin Luther King Jr, 50 Years Later
"It's a cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift himself by his bootstraps.
And many Negroes, by the thousands and millions, have been left bootless … as the result of a society that deliberately made his color a stigma…” https://t.co/ycN2yl4qhP #MLK50 pic.twitter.com/2yi0fZhaW7
