Kom Ons Toet Op Toeter – Afrikaaners Get Their Own ‘Twitter’

Say hello to http://www.Toeter.com, which is touted as the world’s first Afrikaans social media platform.

“Hier kan liefhebbers van die taal gesels, skerts, spog of vuur spoeg. toeter maak die tonge los en laat die poppe dans! Deur middel van #magnete laat toeter almal uit een mond saampraat en bied hy ’n platform vir Jan Alleman om sy stem dik te maak. Dit is ook ’n grasgroen bemarkingsweiveld en ’n bron van inspirasie vir almal wat ’n voorliefde vir Afrikaans koester, ” say the fine folks at Toeter.

“Afrikaans is the third-most-spoken mother tongue in South Africa, with about 7 million native speakers, or 13.5% of the population,” reads a post about this new service in htxt.africa. That’s a big local market, and the ability to target this sector will likely work well for advertisers. I, for one, am definitely going to keep an eye on Toeter to see how it grows.
