The Nation reports that Soyinka said this when he spoke at an event in Lagos on Friday, June 16. He averred that the wrong usage of technology is fast taking humanity backwards due to the use of profiling and abusive words.

While stating that is not a fan of social media, Soyinka said;

“I don’t tweet, I don’t WhatsApp. I tried WhatsApp but I stopped.”
