Lee Kuan Yew on Twitter and Facebook?
In an interview with IHT in January, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew was asked, "Does the Internet bring a bombardment of ideas that can affect traditional values?"
He replied, "This is the big problem. You have only got 24 hours in the day and 10 to 12 hours of effective work. Since the recount, I haven't been able to read a book — even though I've been given a few which are interesting. You just don't have time."
Now I know how he spends some of his time - on Twitter! Yup, Lee Kuan Yew or someone pretending to be him (ha, it has to be) is on Twitter and even Facebook!
His bio on his Twitter page reads: "Inventor of Singapore, Genius, and all-round awesome man."
On one of his tweets, he complained about his lack of fans on Twitter: "wth? I only have 26 followers?! what happened to the rest of the 4 million +!?!?? knn."
So come on Singapore, follow the great LKY on Twitter and don't forget to give him a poke on Facebook as well.
