Social media matters a lot in today’s world as it gives us a platform to publicly announce our thoughts. For the masses, we use it to reach out to one another. For public figures, it’s a way of keeping their reputation up.
Former Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Razak discovered his Facebook posts were not being seen by his followers. His solution was to switch platforms to Telegram.
Najib realised his Facebook page might had been blocked since Thursday morning (8th April). His followers left comments that his posts were not being displayed on their interface and were concerned. Many, including the former PM himself, suspected someone had tampered with his page. “Is someone creating trouble?” he wondered. “Are they scared because I ‘play’ on Facebook?”
Last night (8th April), Najib announced he would continue to post on Telegram instead. “Many friends are now unable to see my posts. Ok, it’s fine. I will open a new Telegram account and use it to message my followers,” he wrote. “If you’re interested, come join!”
The self-dubbed “King of Trolls” only had about 5,000 followers on Telegram last night. Since 9:30am this morning, that number has increased to over 12,000. If you’re interested in knowing what he has to say, it may be time to make the switch to Telegram.
