The Nigerian sector of Twitteratti has come alive again in the last 24 hours as Nigerians have been responding to Senator Ben Bruce’s smart reply to blogger JJ Omojuwa’s tweet.

If Ben Bruce was half active in the Senate as he is on Twitter….. Wonders, I mean positive wonders, will begin to happen in NASS.

Ben Bruce is a senator not a twitter activist. I do hope he can do better and offer help where needed. His tweeting assistant is poor.

Ben Bruce can make common sense on TV cause he owns it, but in the House where his meant to be vocal, he makes common chair..
