Nigerian Govt Changes Platform To Rising Indian Giant



The government of Nigeria has created its official account on Indian microblogging platform Kooo, co-founder and chief executive Aprameya Radhakrishna said on Thursday.

The government's first post was to do with a documentary on Nigeria that will be aired on June 12 in commemoration of Democracy Day.

"Spreading wings beyond India now," wrote Radhakrishna while tagging his co-founder Mayank Bidawatka.

A few days ago Radhakrishna had said the platform was considering enabling the local languages of Nigeria on its platform as the app is available there.

The development comes after the African nation indefinitely suspended Twitter's activities on June 4 after the US-based social media platform deleted a tweet by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a tweet on Saturday, Radhakrishna said: “Kooo is available in Nigeria. We are thinking of enabling the local languages there too..''

Radhakrishna had also posted a screenshot of places such as Rwanda, the Philippines, Niger, Peru and Paraguay previously where was available, and another screenshot which mentioned the languages spoken in Nigeria.

Nigeria’s ministry of information and culture conveyed through its official Twitter account earlier that the government was indefinitely suspending Twitter, with minister of information and culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed also citing Twitter’s persistent use of the platform for activities that are 'capable of undermining Nigeria's corporate existence.’

Twitter said on June 5 that it was ‘deeply concerned’ after Nigeria blocked the platform.

Wow. You sure see Twitter as your god.

It's just a computer program you know?

In theory, even you can write the code for it.

It ain't rocket science.
