From thoughts on the Nigeria/South Africa deportation issues to commendation (and condemnation of Arsenal FC), check out what everyone was talking about on twitter yesterday.
@BankyW: If ur gonna go down, Go down swinging. Bigups to @arsenal… We came up a goal short, but there’s no shame in beating Milan 3-0.
@ogundamisi: South Africa was thrown into national mourning with Nigeria’s deportation of 28 SA citizens. Nigeria is a ‘MUST VISIT’ destination 4 SA abi?
@AbangMercy: Research reveals, only with the arrival of Nigerians in SA did they know that a black man can look a white man in the face and tell him off.
@omojuwa: We beat a team 3-0 and some supposed footie fan is talking about possession. Does hating make you lose your rationality?
@AshAtalla: This Arsenal match is like watching your mum and dad have sex. Just excruciating, but you really can’t take your eyes off it.
@tejucole: Lovely news: “Open City” has won the 2012 PEN/Hemingway Award: http://t.co/JIcgqDuL (for American-published debut fiction)
@BorowitzReport: New Romney Slogan: “Come On, Folks, It’s Time to Settle” #SuperTuesday
@Joan_Rivers: I still think Cooper’s a natural actor. I can’t tell you how many times he’s said to me, “You like nice, Grandma,” without cracking up
@ALIBABAGCFR: I THINK D NIGERIAN GOVT SHLD WAKE UP & RESPECT HER CITIZENS. OTHER COUNTRIES SEE HOW WE TREAT OUR CITIZENS. SO THEY JUST DITTO OR WORSE!
@toluogunlesi: S. Africa accused 125 Nigerians of wielding fake yellow cards. Now, the Nigerians, through their govt, have presented a real red card
