FG deactivates Twitter

The federal government has finally deactivated Twitter. This is the sequel to the directives given to all telecom operators in the country to deactivate twitter on their networks by 12 midnight.

Efforts by National Infinity magazine, to post on its Twitter handle @jidecma, have largely been unsuccessful as the site is declared not reachable.

The action is a direct result of the decision of the Nigerian government to ban activities of Twitter in the country following the deletion of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet, which the microblogging site deemed offensive.
