How do politicians behave on social media?

Tebogo Ditshego, media specialist says the factions within the African National Congress (ANC) have proved that there is no winner.

Ditshego was commenting on the video showing the ANC Eastern Cape elective conference where unhappy members started throwing chairs and fighting.

The video went viral on social media.

You ask yourself if this is a liberation struggle or a power struggle. The ANC needs to check itself because people on social media were saying if the same energy to gain power was used to serve the people, we would have a different society.

Tebogo Ditshego, media specialist

The media specialist added that politicians on social media are a work in progress.

We are not raising the bar, social media is not used to its full capacity because most politicians on social media don’t respond to what their audiences are saying.
