Larry Madowo has been studying abroad for the past one year. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t still engage his Kenyan fans on the regular who might see him on the street when he was still in the +254.
He engages with the fans on his social media pages preferably Twitter and Instagram where the former NTV news anchor has a combined 2.8 million followers.
Yesterday, Larry struck a nerve with his latest post on Twitter where he noted that being on Twitter might have been a pointless exercise.
Madowo, who has been on Twitter for 11 years, rubbished the socializing platform in a post he shared saying, “11 years and 1.8 million followers later, I am now more convinced than ever that Twitter is probably pointless. I’ve wasted my life. What are we doing here?” he said.
The message sparked a huge furor online with some agreeing with him while others went counter to his argument. Some of the best comments are below:

SaNeCollision symbol People who follow you on twitter actually want to listen to what you are saying unlike other platforms where people just want to judge your lifestyle.

While Larry might have his reasons for calling Twitter pointless, many people the world over use the social site as their go-to source for news and entertainment. American President, Donald Trump heavily uses the site to promote his agenda, with the site also having the power to form and guide discussion and opinion.
