Trump praises Nigeria for banning Twitter

Last week, Nigeria indefinitely banned Twitter, which many observers considered a concerning move, since the social media platform is seen as a vital tool for the country's civil society. But former President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a statement praising the decision.

"Congratulations to ... Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their president," Trump said. Twitter did not, in fact, ban Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. The company instead deleted a tweet which threatened separatists in southeastern Nigeria and suspended Buhari's account for 12 hours.

That was enough for Trump, though, who used the incident to call for more countries to follow Nigeria's lead and restrict access to Twitter and Facebook, both of which he currently has no access to, "for not allowing free and open speech." He pondered whether "I should have done it while I was president," but suggested he never did because Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg frequently complimented him while he was in office and then finished the statement with a maybe-not-so cryptic "2024?" Read the full statement below.

I'll be surprised if Trump has even heard of Biafra.

Very few Americans can name even 5 African countries, never mind naming one that doesn't actually exist.

And he couldn't ban Twitter himself as the president of America?

Says a lot of tales of two countries.
Law exists in one and it doesn't exist in another.

A tale of a man (Buhari) who acted rashly as a result of his shattered ego.
That post deleted by Twitter pained Buhari so much. cheesy

Nigeria is leading the global wing-clipping of Big Tech regardless of the tantrums of some rather ignorant, self-hating Nigerians. cool

It comes as authorities around the world clamp down on Big Tech
