YNaija’s next Twitter Personality is another crazy, humorous and cool tweeter. Off Twitter, his friends call him Tosin, but he is known on Twitter as Baba Olorioko-bambam, shortened to @BabaOloriokoBB. Tosin is at University where he’s working towards his degree in Aerospace Engineering. His other interests include ‘fine gals and dope rap music’. He also has a lot of love for comedy – if it’s funny, then he is in! Tosin tells us about his Twitter experience so far.
How did you get on Twitter?
I heard of Twitter from my brother, @tayotv. Actually, he was always on there and he told me it’s fun, so I joined. At first I didn’t understand the whole thing, but later on I got the idea.
Who would you say is your favourite tweep?
You should have asked me who the ugliest tweep was – and that’s @OfficialKaphone. He’s so ugly (j0ke). But my favorite tweep is @Whatz_MyyName. All day, every day.
Is there any particular tweet you’ll never forget? Tell us about it.
Yes it’s this one from @DJBLAKITO “#NaijaRealityShow Meeting the Aderupokos” I think that’s funny.
What are the downsides of being on Twitter?
Twitter is what you make of it. For me, the downside of being on Twitter is that it is time consuming and also suggests a high number of impersonal relationships. Many people will follow you, not because they know you well, but because they are hoping for a follow back. That’s why you see so many people boast about the number of followers they have.
What are the upsides?
I like the fact that it helps you make new friends, get the latest news and most importantly the humour. I have a lot of funny followers and I follow many funny people too. I love to laugh and make people laugh and so far Twitter been a good avenue for that. It’s a lot of fun.
Has Twitter gotten you more fans/friends?
Yeah, a lot of friends. They are all over the place.
Many tweeps say you have a controversial persona on Twitter. Is this true?
Who yarn you that one? I be child of God gentle gentle na so I dey, go no fighting. As you see me so I innocent die. Generally the way anyone sees me depends on them but me o, I be gentle boy.
Describe your Twitter persona in three words.
Mo razz gan!
Do you follow back readily? Why?
Pretty females with correct features get a follow back. In short, if you are cool or funny, I will follow back.
What would possibly make you close your Twitter account?
When Twitter starts to get boring, I might deactivate my account.
