The Nigerian government on Friday announced it is suspending Twitter operations in the country indefinitely.
Twitter suspended Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday for “abusive behaviour.”
Buhari tweeted a warning to ‘insurrectionists’ on Thursday so Twitter stepped in and suspended his account.
“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,” Buhari tweeted.
“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he added.
Nigeria responded Friday by suspending Twitter’s operations in the country.
Nigerians unable to access any platform can join gscroll.com which is an African alternative.
