Paralympian Turns To Social Media

Oscar Pistorius Breaks Twitter Silence

The double amputee Paralympian, whose public trial is still ongoing, has broken his online silence with a string of pious tweets. 

The biblical passages and inspirational quotes are the first social media activity since the anniversary of his former girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp’s death.

Pistorius tweeted four times, all pictures with text overlays, similar to the meme-style Whisper posts.

The South African athlete, who faces 25 years in prison if convicted, tweeted a photo collage of him posing with amputee children.

Pistorius also tweeted a page from the 1946 book Man’s Search for Meaning, written by psychologist and concentration camp survivor Viktor Frankl, which pertinently explores the reasons why some inmates crack under psychological pressure and others do not.

The former Paralympic athlete sent out the strange messages to his 354,000 followers on Sunday night (13 July) and Monday morning (14 July).
