Followers of Bafana Bafana on social media will be happy to know that the Twitter handle for the Men’s Senior National Team has been verified and there will no longer be any confusion as to which is the official account.
The account was verified last week and in addition Bafana Bafana got their original handle – @BafanaBafana – back, thanks to the assistance of the Twitter team. The old handle @Bafana_Bafana1 will no longer be used and followers and supporters are encouraged to use the new account.
Current followers will not have to re-follow the account but will notice the change in the account name.
More positive news for SAFA social media is that the Association’s twitter handle – @SAFA_net as well as the Women’s Senior National Team Banyana Banyana (@Banyana_Banyana) had their accounts also verified.
SAFA head of communications Dominic Chimhavi said he was happy with the latest developments and encouraged national team football fans and football followers in general to use these mediums to share views and suggestions.
“Social media and Twitter in particular are important tools for any brand in these modern times. It allows us to receive instant feedback from the public and share ideas.
“We encourage the public to keep engaging us through these platforms. We endeavor to address any issues raised but more importantly to use the platforms to provide updates about developments at SAFA,” said Chimhavi.
