Following The Twitter Boycott On 9th April To Stop Twitter Harassment, See What The Organiser Posted

You would recall that a few days ago, a popular Nigerian attorney, Modupe Odele popularly known as mochievous announced a twitter boycott slated for the 9th of April in order to stand against twitter harassment to women and misogyny. The boycott involved not tweeting, liking, commenting on or retweeting any post for that day.

The boycott was well applauded and so many people looked forward to it. Some made jest of the reason for the boycott, stating that anyone who is not satisfied with the happenings on twitter can leave.

However, the boycott happened on the slated date and the male gender seized the opportunity to celebrate the day, and even trended the hashtag #InternationalTwitterMensDay.

This action did not sit well with the organiser of this boycott, she tweeted this afternoon, being two days after the boycott. See what she said:

Her tweet was not taken with light weight as trolls descended on her heavily. See reactions to the tweet:

The reactions to the post are not nice at all. But to be very realistic, we know a lot of women go through harassment from the male counterparts, however, in mochievous' case, do you think there's pain in her or something she's trying to heal from that makes her feel that way towards men?

Let me know what you think.
