Many people have used Twitter to tell the world something unique about their country that isn't the usual economy or political news. The account Kenyans On Twitter (@KOT), for example, has created an ecosystem for Kenyans to share information about their home.
Ghana is no different. Ghanaians use the hashtag #233moments, created by blogger Ato Ulzen Appiah, to tweet what they are doing at exactly 2:33 p.m. GMT. Global Voices co-founder Ethan Zuckerman elaborated on the hashtag in a post for Ghana's the Daily Graphic:
From church posters to the backs of tro-tros, from business conferences to roadside sellers, from beach resorts to lazy lunches (especially on “WaakyeWednesday”, when it's customary to post from your favourite chop bar), #233moments celebrates what's colorful, wonderful and unique about this remarkable nation, and shares it with anyone willing to hear.
Take a look at some #233moments tweets below.
