Cellphone text-chat service MXit has furiously rejected suggestions that it could have been responsible for the disappearance of a Parktown schoolgirl last week.
MXit spokesperson, Juan du Toit, branded reports as sensation-seeking, misleading and inaccurate, and warned that legal advice is being sought with a view to possibly suing newspaper publishers.
Du Toit states that, “Even if it does emerge that she [Nabeela Omar] accepted a friendly request from a stranger, it is not fair to condemn a technology for bad choices made by one user.
MXit is not responsible for (her) disappearance,” argues Du Toit.
