An exposed Twitter executive, Ramone Martin, has been accused of blocking Kenyans criticizing him on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter. Many Kenyans have complained of being blocked by the Twitter executives instead of listening to criticism, and act on the concerns raised.
On 30th July, the same day the Twitter executives touched down in Kenya, Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi’s Twitter account was suspended in a strange case of multiple malicious reporting.

The Twitter executives met government officials and attended a Safaricom Blaze event, though it is not clear if they did that as individuals or they were representing masters of the universe, Twitter. The event was organized by Scangroup, a company whose employees have been lobbying for the banning of Nyakundi from Twitter.
A few weeks ago, Social media users complained about any hashtag criticizing Safaricom not trending and it now seems we have the answers.
Well, after these two executives were exposed, Kenyans started asking them the hard questions leading to many being blocked by the executives. Twitter doesn’t really take the opinion of Kenyans serious, and that is why they shut the @TwitterKenya Account after they were accused of manipulating trends in favour of the government and censoring opposition conversations.

It is not clear why Ramone Martin, Twitter Account Executive – East Africa is blocking users but all we know is that message is home. Maybe he only wants to listen to Scangroup, Safaricom and government officials that will help Twitter sell ads in Kenya.
