Malala Yousafzai Officially Joined Twitter And Pakistanis Were Ready For Mehmaan Nawaazi

By Sajeer Shaikh | 7 Jul, 2017

So, in case you didn’t know, Pakistan’s very own controversial, yet badass feminist icon, Malala Yousafzai, is now officially on Twitter. 

Malala Yousafzai decided that a simple ‘hi’ would be a great first tweet, which it is. Hi, Malala.

Twitter also tweeted back at her, because of course. She’s Malala Yousafzai. 

Humein qadar na ho par doosron ko toh hai.

However, Malala herself didn’t JUST stop at a ‘hi.’ Nah, in true Malala-style, she tweeted an entire thread pertaining to her upcoming plans

So we know she just graduated, and it’s been a bittersweet experience for her

And she acknowledges how girls around the world may not get the opportunity to complete their education

However, she went on to talk about her Girl Power Trip where she would meet girls from around the globe

She also went on to mention how every girl’s voice is unique and must be heard

And she concluded the thread by asking the Twitterverse to help join in on her mission

Now, every time Malala Yousafzai comes up, people tend to have a variety of different reactions. Yahan pe bhi soorat-e-haal kuch aisay hee thay. 

Some people stood up in support

And welcomed Malala to Twitter with open arms

Some called her a hero

And others called her their inspiration

However, our desi awaam was mostly on the fence about the whole scenario

Unfortunately, some labeled her a drama queen

And were quick to question how much work she’s done for the country

Some thought that Twitter doubled as an investigation center

While others simply put forward conspiracy theories

However, it was great to see that not everyone had hopped aboard the anti-Malala train

And people were actually giving her advice to maintain a thick skin against trolls

In fact, some even tweeted against these trolls who criticize Malala Yousafzai from behind a screen

Fun fact: Trolls who harass people on Twitter can actually be reported. Visit Digital Rights Foundation’s website or their Facebook page to know more, or simply call their hotline (0800-39393) that’s functional Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm.

Khair, jo bhi ho, we’re more than happy to welcome Malala to Twitter.

Are you super excited to welcome Malala to Twitter? Do you think this will serve as an insight into her mind? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
