A Kenyan on Reddit, an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website, has delineated the reasons why she recently quit one of the most popular social media platforms in the country.
In the move she describes as “the best decision” she has made so far this year, the anonymous cybernaut resolved to parting ways with Kenyans on Twitter [KOT] and ditching the app altogether.
According to the post, some of the reasons that drove her into doing this were the increased number of extremely toxic patriarchal and feminist tweets; with the options of the mute and block buttons proving useless.
In the comments, majority of Kenyans seemed to agree with her. One Reddit user criticized the quality of conversations on the platform while another noted that incidents of cyberbullying have risen over the last few weeks.
