We’ve seen the Nigerian youth protest injustice from their government on Twitter. And we’ve seen them give voices to their causes. Members of the Nigerian government have openly spoken out against Twitter and the social media app’s involvement in the country’s politics.
With the relationship already rocky, the Nigerian government put a ban on Twitter in the country after the president, Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet was deleted by the social media platform.
Here is what the ban means for Nigeria’s youth:
Losing Access To A Global Networking Tool
Nigerian Youth Are Getting International Handlers For Their Accounts

It’s a difficult thing to believe possible, but Twitter was banned in Nigeria and it’s affecting the livelihoods an businesses in very real ways.
