How John Dumelo Now Engages On Twitter After His Election Defeat

John Dumelo

John Dumelo has adopted new ways of interacting and engaging with his followers on Twitter after his defeat to Lydia Alhassan in the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary election.

Mr Dumelo, who contested for the seat on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), polled 37,778 votes, while Madam Alhassan, who is the incumbent MP, garnered 39,851 votes to retain the seat.

John Dumelo was ridiculed and trolled on social media after he lost the election.

After the results were declared, Dumelo indicated in a tweet that had he written to the District Electoral Officer of Ayawaso West Wuogon demanding a recount of the ballots, and that has since been the only statement he’s made with words on Twitter after the election.

All he does now is to reply tweets directed at him with emojis, GIFs, memes and short videos.

John Dumelo started off by replying to tweets about his involvement in the just-ended elections with emojis.

The first person’s tweet that he reacted to after the elections was Ghanaian artiste, Pappy Kojo.

Pappy Kojo tweeted: “I’m with you Mr Dumelo, I cried alone in 2016 but I’m with you,” and Dumelo replied with five “face with tears of joy” emojis.

He went on to reply other tweets directed at him with emojis.

John Dumelo then moved from using emojis to GIFs.

And now, he has started using short videos to reply tweets that question him about the just ended elections and his future plans as a politician.

Here are some of his reactions to tweets with short videos:

We hope that after this stage of replying tweets with short videos, he will start tweeting with words again.
