The Federal Government on Friday announced that it has suspended the operations of microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.
This was as a result of recent deleting of President Buhari’s tweets which the social networking service said contravened its rules.
Nigerians have now taken to social media to express their feelings on this recent action taken by the Federal Government.
See some tweets reacting to the issue below:
The suspension of the activities of @Twitter in Nigeria by the @MBuhari administration should be ignored by @Jack. The Buhari government has no means to effect the suspension, and even members of the administration are still on Twitter#TwitterSuspendBuharisAccount#TableShaker

Does President Buhari and the federal government know how much young Nigerians make on social media platforms like Twitter daily? Does Lai Mohammed know the number of jobs being sustained by Twitter in Nigeria 🇳🇬? What is wrong with these people?

Let me understand;
So for removing a tweet that threatened genocide against a people, the Buhari’s govt decided to suspend the operations of @Twitter in Nigeria? So the President isn’t sorry about the unfortunate tweet?

You can suspend Twitter in Nigeria in a week, but you can’t solve insecurity, electricity issues, health, education, roads since 1960?. Shameless!!!!!!

So if they suspend Twitter in Nigeria, where will the Federal Government spread their lies and threats from?

If they want us to take this Twitter in Nigeria suspension serious, Buhari, Bashir, Femi Adesina, Lai Mohammed and the rest of the gang should first deactivate their account, then we will know that they mean business

Federal Government suspends Twitter in Nigeria. Now I see why Jack chose to place the Headquarter in Ghana instead of Nigeria, A country where the leaders don’t practice democracy?Jack successfully dodged a bullet.

Banning @Twitter violates S. 22 & 39 of the 1999 Constitution. Twitter seems to be the only medium through which we hold the reckless regime of Buhari responsible. We will resist the attempts to ban Twitter in Nigeria.
