After suspending Twitter indefinitely, Nigeria opens account on India's Koo
New Delhi : Days after suspending Twitter indefinitely, Nigeria has opened an account on India's Koo. Soon after Nigeria made it official that it has opened the account on Koo, its CEO Aprameya Radhakrishna posted on Twitter a welcome message along with a screenshot of the Nigerian government’s account on Koo. Owned by Bombinate Technologies, Koo has long been considered as India’s alternative to Jack Dorsey’s Twitter.
“A very warm welcome to the official handle of the Government of Nigeria on @kooindia Spreading wings beyond India now,” Radhakrishna tweeted soon after this.
Recently, the Nigerian government had imposed a ban on Twitter after it deleted a remark of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Announcing its decision, the Nigerian government has said that Twitter’s suspension in the country will end once the American social media giant submits to local licencing, registration and conditions, rejecting criticism the ban had stifled freedom of expression.
Koo has recently become a popular choice among several celebrities who have been fed-up with Twitter's changing policies.
