With over 80 000 followers and counting, nine likes and seven tweets, including two videos under his belt, former president Jacob Zuma has assured South Africans they will soon become familiar with his new social-media self.

“You will get used to me,” declared Zuma in his second video posted onto his Twitter account on Saturday.

“I am part of the people and I must be with them and I must be in the conversation to correct things; to also respond to things that need responding too,” he declares in the video titled: “I am still learning about the sphithiphithi of social media”.

Loosely translated, ‘sphithiphithi’ means ‘madness’.
