Hashtags: Giving the doctor a taste of his medicine


Stanley Sempijja (@SsempijjaStanle) is actually a doctor of the twitter streets! A unique position for the guy most of us remember for putting Sheila Gashumba to bed over the rights to show off an iPhone on the timeline. Apparently Stan had the right because whereas Gashumba was over the moon over a 720p iPhone, Stan had the right to brag because he had two 1080p iPhones which he had bought himself (forgive me, I don’t know what the numbers mean either).

Sempijja has since then gone on to make every tweet an iPhone tweet. We all liked it at the start, but the Baganda say, and I translate, even the best dancer eventually has to leave the floor. We got fed up of the whole iPhone ideal, and twitter decided to rub it in his face. So Twitter cooked up #TweetLikeStan. Welcome to Monday

So in Summary, this is where it started


Having established that ground, Sempijja went on to cement his highly acclaimed status


Stan also went ahead to become the S.I Unit of definition of what a real iPhone is


Now the people we feel sorry for are the girls in his life. Their texts and calls must be from iPhone. Even their nani


“Hey I bought a brand new Samsung s9, water and shutter proof, 128 GB…”

Then Stan finds you midway that proclamation


Also, Stan is opening auditions for the people wanting his follow back. Here is the start of the interview


When all that was said and done, Stan went ahead to even belittle the rest of us Wanainchi


That is when twitter snapped. Just because you have a phone you think you will run this show? Here is a reminder sir. We are actually worried about you


We even set him up on an Android date. We don’t play around


Oh, needless to say, it has been a while since Stan said a thing online about the iPhone. Dear @tecnoUganda, you may want to take him on.

PS: The buzz is not yet done. Check out #TweetLikeStan on the timeline and have a say of your own
