Just days after getting in on the social media action, Jacob Zuma got survival tips from Black Twitter - and they're hilarious.

On Friday, the former president joined Twitter and received a warm welcome, with many people on the network referring to him as 'uBaba'. 

In his first video post, he said: "I hear that many people are talking about me as well as others are calling themselves Zuma in many ways. I felt it was necessary that I should join in and be part of the conversation."

Almost as soon as he joined, his followers alerted him that people were not only "talking" about him, but they are also using his photos as memes. 

Knowing how tricky social media can get for newbies, the online community took it upon itself to school the former president on how to make the most of Twitter.

Tweeps also warned Zuma about slay queens, among other things.
