Wole Soyinka has opinions about social media

"... I do not tweet, blog or whatever goes on in this increasingly promiscuous medium"

Basically the Nobel laureate,–who despite giving interviews to blogs and having his writing published on sites like Sahara Reporters (which wouldn’t have existed, but for the internet)–hates all social media:

“… Let me take this opportunity to announce yet again that I do not tweet, blog or whatever goes on in this increasingly promiscuous medium. I do not run a Facebook, even though I am aware that one or two serious-minded individuals/groups have instituted some such forum on their own, for the purpose of disseminating factual information on my activities. I neither contribute to, nor comment on the contents of their calendar … To speak generally, Internet abuse is getting to be a universal plague, one that goes beyond personal embarrassment and umbrage. I strongly recommend collective, professional action to protect the integrity of the medium, and save it from becoming a mere vomitorium for unprincipled scallywags with, or even with no particular axe to grind.”
