Monday 28, February 2011 seems to be significant for Kenya's netizens. Kenyans have been using Twitter, Facebook and even email to discuss whether they should use the twitter hashtag #KenyaFeb28 to marshal protest over political issues or whether the same platform should be utilized to spur a sense of nationalism.
To protest or not to protest? That is the question. Following role the social media site Twitter played in the Tunisian and Egyptian protests, Kenyans are discussing on Twitter whether to emulate these protests or not. Trending on Twitter are the hashtags #KenyaFeb28 and #ChoosePeace.
