The Federal Government has followed through with its decision to ban the operations of microblogging site, Twitter in Nigeria after citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining the nation’s corporate existence as its reason for the action.
A directive was, Friday night, given to telecommunication companies in the country to deactivate twitter by 12 midnight- an instruction that has now been carried out.
Checks by this reporter between the hours of 3a.m and 4a.m revealed that tweets were not loading across all devices.
An attempt to refresh tweets returned the message “Tweets aren’t loading right now. Try again” on mobile, while on desktop, it was “This site can’t be reached”
