The worst tweets of the week (21.08.15)

So here’s a little thing we’re going to start doing on YNaija, Nigerians on the Internet say the dumbest things and we just can’t let them go away like nothing has happened.

Every Friday, we’ll gather the absolute worst tweets on #NigerianTwitter and we’ll discuss them like one big happy family. I believe this is what they call “tabling your matter”.


1. Married women on Instagram

I don’t know, maybe because married women like taking pictures. Sounds crazy, I know. Someone needs to look into it for sure. We could be on to something here.

 2. Rape

Hmmm…what about little children that get raped? All those short shorts that little girls wear. Walking around in diapers and all that. Definitely the easy going types, eh?

3. Moral Authority

Like your wife is a JSS1 student that refused to fetch water for a senior.

Had no idea husbands had moral authority in the household. I can’t wait till I get married so I can wield this moral authority. Does it come with a belt? Something like this…


It would be so legit.

4. Feminism

Because feminism and cooking are mutually exclusive.

Why does every debate about feminism on #NigerianTwitter always revolve around cooking? All these Twitter daddies get so worked up when women they’re not married to are not interested in cooking.

This uncle sounds like he just saw a unicorn. A feminist that cooks? What in the world?

5. Feminism (Part II)

You know what? Fair enough. Reasonable metric.

6. Feminism

But that other man said husbands have “moral authority”. This thing is really making my head hurt now.

Honestly have no idea what’s worse – the original tweet or the reply. Either way…
