News: Does the President Watch Idols?

News: Does the President Watch Idols?
We were tickled pink with flattery when the official Presidency account tweeted this on Sunday:

OH NO! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. Far away in another timezone. – PresidencyZA.

About an hour later, our bubble went bust when we saw the following tweet:

The last tweet was not an official tweet from The Presidency or the President but rather an administrative error. Our apologies. – PresidencyZA.

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. - Mzansimagic.

God help us "@PresidencyZA: OH NO!! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. I'm far away in another timezone. #sadness" - mcleodd Duncan McLeod.

Seriously? O_o RT @PresidencyZA: OH NO!! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. I'm far away in another timezone. #sadness - sparklez23 Plum aka Tanya.

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

URGENT I FORGOT TO PVR @IdolsSA PLEASE SEND ME A COPY OF LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE @GarethCliff - Jacob_G_Zuma

It, too, garnered responses from Twitter uses:

"@Jacob_G_Zuma: URGENT I FORGOT TO PVR @IdolsSA PLEASE SEND ME A COPY OF LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE.... Uve gota love our president!! - n_siyapi

Everyone has one time or another made Facebook or Twitter blunders, even our Contestants. Watch these videos:
