Fri, 27 Jul 2012 10:22
We were tickled pink with flattery when the official Presidency account tweeted this on Sunday:

Nevertheless, responses came in fast and furious, ranging from amusement to admonishment:
You can watch here Mr President ;) tiny.cc/4pwuhw RT @PresidencyZA OH NO! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. Far away in another timezone. -
God help us "@PresidencyZA: OH NO!! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. I'm far away in another timezone. #sadness" -

While the Jacob_G_Zuma account (a self-claimed parody Twitter account) hopped onto the bandwagon with this tweet:

It, too, garnered responses from Twitter uses:
