Twitter Co Founder and CEO, Jack Dorsey at exactly 12 a.m this morning tweeted the Nigerian Flag in commemoration of the country’s democracy day.
It is also coming ahead of planned nationwide protest which has been trending on the social media platform in different countries with the hashtag #June12Protest.
Twitter has been banned by the Nigerian Government for over a week now with the country losing billions of naira as a result of it.
The Information and Culture Minister, Lai Mohammed recently said that the ban wasn’t as a result of the deletion of President Buhari’s offensive tweet by the micro blogging giant but because it allegedly shows sympathy for agents of destabilization of the Nigerian State. He cited the end sars protest last year of how Jack Dorsey helped the protesters raise funds online and retweeted some of their tweets.
Some offensive tweets by the leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) have been taken down after the FG complained to them.
Twitter and the FG are in serious talks to reopen the site and the latter wants to compel them to register in the country alongside other OTT platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram.
