Nigeria has more accounts on Twitter than any African country, now there is a ban on the entire country for accessing Twitter, and today I am here to teach or show you how to use your Twitter account in Nigeria during this time.
It’s all started with a tweet from the President of Nigeria, Buhari who made a tweet that went against the rules or regulations of Twitter, below is what he said in the tweet.
“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
The above tweet gets people to feel that he was insensitive to make an analogy of the civil war. Many people criticized the tweet and they subsequently reported it to Twitter which pushed them to delete the post with a comment, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules”.
Mohammed knocked Twitter for supporting insurrection in Nigeria last October during their massive #EndSARS protests which caused destruction and even took some lives and properties almost all over Nigeria.
Reacting consequently on the statement, the Nigerian minister made it clear that, the Buhari government has suspended all activities of Twitter in Nigeria.
This statement was titled, ‘FG Suspends Twitter’s Operations in Nigeria’, read, “The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of
the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.
