One country has decided to officially ban Twitter. The curious aspect is that the announcement arrived on the platform itself
A decision taken within a few hours and which has already become official: Twitter was banned in Nigeria. A news that is unbelievable, considering the implications that have been in the days prior to the press release. Last Wednesday, the president Muhammadu Buhari was blocked for 12 hours and one particular post was removed.
According to what emerged, it seems that with a tweet the leader of the African country has violated the policies of the social network. Put simply, it was an announcement of reprisals by the government against the secessionists. Twitter’s move prompted the government to proceed as drastically as possible: with the total blockade for citizens.
