South African poet, Ntsiki Mazwai thinks that television is dumbing down South Africans.
Mazwai noticed that the Twitter trends mostly consisted of TV shows, and took to social media to voice her concern.
"I always get here to find tv trending....do you run out of topics," Mazwai tweeted.
She continued in a follow-up tweet: "Our people are being dumbed down with tv.....what valuable and conscious shows are you watching my fellow Africans?"
"All I see is soapies trending and I realize you will never be ready for revolution."
Mazwai says that people will get smarter if they curb their TV habits.
"If you stop watching tv for one week I swear to you ...you will start sounding smarter."
"I wonder if tv shows take up the whole trends list in other countries. This is so pathetic guys. Everyday."
