Twitter Prints Kenyan’s Tweet On Giant Billboard in Cannes, France

OneDay Billboard (2)

Something amazing has happened over at Twitter and it feels like that’s the only platform that has been getting positive vibes of late.

One Kenyan tweep, @Kiritubobo, has gotten what most of us dream of, being on a billboard –  Okay, it’s not her face and she’s not being paid for it but Twitter put her tweet on a giant billboard in Cannes, France –  and that in itself is a pretty big deal!

The story starts back on March 19, 2019, when Ms Kiritubobo (we’ll call her that from now on, hoping that it’s not a catfish account😬) sent out a simple tweet, sharing her dream of being on a billboard someday;

The tweet didn’t go viral or anything but it somehow got the attention of Twitter who, through their notification account, responded asking for her permission to put her tweet on a billboard in France, at that time her tweet only has 3 retweets and 4 likes;

Well, It’s June and you can guess what happened. Twitter actually put Ms Kiritubobo’s tweet on a billboard as they said they would.

Around 24 hours ago, someone (who seems to be in France) shared a photo of the said billboard being put up, tagging Ms Kiritubobo on his tweet;

The billboard is part of a campaign that Twitter is running to show its advertising prowess and the power of its audience. Ms Kiritubobo was lucky enough to be chosen in a move that might put her on the spotlight, we hope that the 4 days she gets being flashed around in France will bear fruits for her.

Out of excitement, she’s gone ahead and changed her Twitter name to “Your Billboard Girl” –  we all would and like everyone else in her mentions, we say congratulations Ms Kiritubobo!

But, don’t push your lack, we don’t think it works with this:
