There are few people that do not know @GbaGaunDetector. He has either detected your gbagaun or you’ve come across a retweet of his hilarious remarks when he detects gbagauns. He’s one tweep that cracks all those who follow him up. However he’s a mystery to a lot of people, and even in this quick chat, he still maintained the air. We were able to get this much from him:
First of all, let’s settle the issue of your gender. Are you male or female?
Lol!!! I’m male!
How did you get on Twitter?
A friend introduced me. Before then, I always thought Facebook was the ‘ish’. Well, jonzing days are over.
Who would you say is your favourite tweep?
I’ll say it’s @itsmissbee.
Is there any particular tweet you’ll never forget? Tell us about it.
Oh yes! It’s actually my Favourite Gbagaun: “I Will Deletion Ma FaceBook Soon….smh”. I was like WTH? How will someone think like this? I laughed so hard I cried.
Have you had any embarrassing/memorable experience on Twitter? If yes, what happened?
Not really. I’m still waiting for such incident.
What are the downsides of being on Twitter?
Downsides? Well I don’t think there’s any.
What are the upsides?
You meet new people. In short, Twitter connects you to the world with ease.
What exactly was the motive behind creating your handle?
Will you say you’ve gotten more criticisms than thumbs up for detecting gbagauns? How do you deal with the criticisms?
No, I have gotten more thumbs up than criticisms. Well, for those who criticise me, I try to make them my friends but if they don’t want to be friends, I just ignore them. Some can really piss you off you know! And I don’t think a critic moves me, because No Be Your Father Get Twitter.
Do you follow back readily? Why?
What would possibly make you close your Twitter account?
