#yorais – A Malaysian-made Twitter Trending Topic Story

So it all started when Dr Rais Yatim, Information Communication and Culture Minister of Malaysia made a statement (quoted via a Bernama piece and theStar), saying ‘Muslims must avoid being totally immersed in Facebook, Twitter’ thus exhorting Malaysians to be wary of the popular Internet services.(He recently advised Malaysians to not be immersed in the "western culture" that is Facebook and Twitter.)

Now what Rais did NOT know is how he’d become a mini-celebrity in Twitter, touted as the most viral social media tool ever to be created, within a span of 4 hours from when the hastag, “#yorais“, got formed.


just got to know that even my 6 year old student got a facebook account too..childrens now are so IN..lolx
