G is for #GrammarNazi

A-Z-KOT-phone-GKenyans on Twitter are notoriously attentive about spelling. Whether it’s the Queen’s English or US grammar, KOT tend to spot and punish spelling errors and autocorrected tweets swiftly. Where brands are concerned, screenshots are often quickly taken as evidence for the trial by timeline. Where individuals are concerned, depending on the severity of the offence one can end up being ridiculed from anywhere from fleeting minutes to days on end. The #GrammarNazi isn’t original to Kenya but is often spotted in Bios and descriptions in Twitter profiles or on within tweets on the timeline as they gather around the hashtag and scene of a spelling crime.
