Nigeria banned Twitter for deleting the President's tweet

If the Coo company succeeds in this endeavor, the company will definitely have better days.

Apumay Radhakrishna, co-founder of Koo, has tweeted after the ban on Twitter in Nigeria. “Koo is now also available in Nigeria. We plan to offer services in local languages. What do you think about this ?, ”Apramey said in a tweet. In this tweet, he also shared a screenshot of the coupe available in Nigeria.

In a deleted tweet, President Mohammed Buhari referred to the 30-month war between 1967 and 1970 in a tweet for those who want the government to fail.

Why not delete their tweet?

Broadcasting Minister Lai Mohammed has accused Twitter of having an agenda to delete the tweet, according to African News. What Twitter wants to do in Nigeria is very skeptical. Lai Mohammad raised the question of why Twitter did not delete the violent tweet from Nanmadi Kanu. Kanu is the Leader of the Opposition.

Twitter company supports insurgents....?

Some time ago, when people were setting fire to police stations in the name of agitation in the country, Twitter claimed that it was their right to protest.

Following the deletion of the President's tweet on Wednesday, the Nigerian government questioned the role of Twitter, saying the US company's policies were contradictory. Nigeria says the company supports the rebels.
