On smart phones and e-diots
On the flip side, the proliferation of smart phones and the consequent new knowledge of social media have bequeathed Nigeria with very many e-diots. An e-diot, in my thinking, is anyone who thinks that because they have a smart phone or computer, they must have and share spontaneous opinions, news items or positions on every matter of national or global interest. A good example of an e-diot is that man or woman who arrived the scene of the Nyanya bomb blast on time and proceeds to run around snapping and filming burnt victims and maimed survivors dripping in blood and stretching their injured hands out for urgent help.
The widest playground for the e-diot is the political social media, where ethnoreligious bigotry guide their unguarded posts and frequent comments. Hadi AliBaba(08035370838)
