The official account of the South African presidency sent a mistaken tweet about missing out on “Idols South Africa.”
The error did not go unnoticed on Twitter.
Distracted by Golf? / @PresidencyZA OH NO!! I'm missing out on @IdolsSA. I'm far away in another timezone. #sadness

The Idols SA tweet by the @PresidencyZA is a clear demonstration why communication has to be in the hands of professionals

Next thing @PresidencyZA will be tweeting about how he missed Khethiwe and #Generations.

That forced the administration to tweet a correction.
The last tweet was not an official tweet from The Presidency or the President but rather an administrative error. Our apologies.

That @presidencyza tweet about Idols is up there with the Hashim Amla performance, legendary 😀

I reckon whoever manages @PresidencyZA’s account tweeted from there by mistake. Who hacks the Presidents twitter and tweets about Idols?
