On Monday evening, the State Of Black Twitter Address (SOBTA2020) was held by the order of Umalambane, the new Twitter account which seems to have taken over from Advo Barry Roux.
Umalambane held his first address on Twitter where he announced his new cabinet since the cancelation of Advovo and he was elected.
This evening, we gather here humbled by the memories of those men & women who gave up after MTN cut off free Twitter. However we welcome all who left Facebook to dwell on this blue app of ours.

The new public protector was announced as @SciTheComedist and Simon from Date My Family gave the closing prayer.
Advovo has not responded to the new cabinet but the parody account did retweet a tweet from TakaTina saying that he is Black Twitter Africa’s chairman.
“We run formal elections in May here chief, not le nonsense niyenzayo ingathi grade 2`s voting for someone to write noisemakers.”
