The Council of Governors was on Monday forced to apologise after one of their social media handlers used their official twitter account to endorse loud sex.
Trouble started when a netizen, identified as Kimone Pitterson, initiated a trending phrase, “Sco pa tu manaa” which asks users to contribute their thoughts about a particular topic or person.
Pitterson’s subject matter was on the matter of talking during sexual intercourse which was endorsed by Taruri Gatere.
Gatere’s tweet accidentally won the endorsement of the Council of Governors after their official handle retweeted her sentiments.
“Yes Please. Say my name. Moan. Tell me how it feels. Tell me what you like. Tell me how much you like it. Ask me questions I cant answer because I’m too into it. Look into my eyes and smile and say hi. I love that sh*t!” the retweeted message stated.
The CoG’s apparent endorsement of the tweet quickly went viral before the handlers realised their blunder.
“Sincerest apologies. We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate retweet through our twitter handle. We have regained control of our handle and have put proper measures to ensure this does not occur again,” the Governors’ forum stated.
CoG is one of the many prominent personalities and corporates who have landed in trouble after retweeting, liking, or posting inappropriate material.
Safaricom was recently on the spot after one of its social media editors used its official handle to publish tweets disparaging Kenyans demanding for a Kenyan to succeed former CEO Bob Collymore.
“Let the government first improve management in Muhoroni, NHIF, Mumias, Kenya Airways and Kenya Pipeline and many other organisations that have deliberately been run down by state appointees before they can think of imposing their choice on Safaricom,” said the giant telco.
They later blamed the inappropriate language on a “system glitch”.
“Good morning. We apologise for the series of tweets that went out from our official accounts last night. We had a system glitch that has since been rectified. Thank you,” Safaricom said.
The errors are often caused by the fact that social media editors run multiple accounts, including their personal accounts which brings about the risk of accidentally interchanging the handles.
