Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, has called on her fans to be weary of how they use social media and not allow it rule their way of life.

She made this call while explaining the challenges she had to go through while trying to restore back her social media account after she was wrongfully accused of sharing irrelevant things that are not in accordance with the terms and conditions of the page.

Kate stated that as technology advances, it continues to control the lives of many in the country but she will not allow that happen to her as she will not return to social media of such occurrence takes place.

“A few days ago, I wanted to send out a tweet but to my surprise found that my account had been suspended. One of the processes required to unsuspend my account was to write an appeal. Appeal? When I had done nothing wrong? Also one required that I add my phone number, I tried to, it told me I had not put in a valid phone number. At this point I gave up. A few friends reached out to me because as far as I was concerned, I am blameless in this whole saga. I decided to leave it to them to decide to restore the account on their own because I was sure nothing wrong was done on my part definitely!!

“Anyway, so today I tried again and was sent this message of apology which also included warning me to behave. Na wa. For the love of my fans, my work and brands that I represent I followed the instructions and presto, account back on. If in the future you don't see me on Twitter anymore, it will be that an incident like this has occurred again and I have let it go. Social media has a way of trying to dominate one's life as we advance in technology. There has to be a balance. It will not rule mine,” she wrote.
