The ‘streets’ of Twitter was thrown into uproar following two sex tapes that hit the timelines, eliciting reactions from various users of the microblogging platform.
It is alleged that one of the clips that emerged involved two students of the University of Lagos, Yaba, Lagos Mainland, although no evidence exists to back up such allegation.
Information reaching us at InsideMainland has it that the Akokites have closed for the session, and this leaves one to wonder why the institution that prides itself as ‘Univerisity of First Choice’ cannot but trend.
Here are three things we learnt from the trend:
UNILAG CAN TREND FOR NOTHING
It is expected that when there is a trend on Twitter, something big must have happened. However, Unilag defies the usual. Trace TV was not organizing another Marlian fest, neither was there was a repeat of the ‘harvest of queries ‘, yet Unilag still finds a ladder to climb up the Twitter trend table.
AKOKITES HAVE GOT A REPUTATION
A video emerges from nowhere, two adults were caught in the act in a place that could be anywhere in the world, but the first place that comes to mind for Twitter users is Unilag. It may be just a Twitter trend, but it gives an insight into how the online community perceives the school.
NIGERIANS LIKE TO JUMP ON TRENDS
That moment you see a trend on Twitter and you are trying to find the root cause of the trend, sooner than later you will run into someone who has goods to sell, and guess what? The goods have nothing in relation with the trend. Our Online CEOs are ever ready to market their wares, all they need is just a trend.
