Twitter Ban Enters Third Month Causing Drawback To Economy And Affecting Youths Negatively

Posted by Admin  12th Aug 2021, 08:03am

The Federal Government of Nigeria banned Twitter on June 4, 2021, ordering all internet service providers to suspend access.


 


The sanction was a response to the deletion of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet.



 

 


Buhari said perpetrators of carnage in the South-East region did not witness the loss of lives during the civil war.


 


“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he had written.


 


Thousands of users reported the tweet, forcing Twitter to take action. The microblogging site explained that it violated its rules. Consequently, the Nigerian government announced the suspension of the platform.


 


With Nigerians locked out, many opted for Virtual Private Networks to access the platform.


 


But the authorities warned that those who continued to tweet will be prosecuted. This threat was later withdrawn.



 

 


Citizens have not stopped condemning the sanction, accusing the President of taking the removal of his tweet personal.


 


The international community and rights organisations view the Twitter ban as an act against media freedom and access to information.


 


On the other hand, the embargo has taken a toll on the major users of social media, the young demographic.
