Twitter suspended Nigeria's president and the country responded by banning the whole platform 😂

Jun 5th

It's always fun to see social media giants fight with national governments.

Not only does it show how both are often dictators seeking to restrict free speech, but it reminds us how much power the Silicon-valley nerds have over literal nations in today's world.

Twitter and Nigeria were the ones involved in the most recent spat:

Here's what happened:

Nigeria's government has announced an indefinite suspension of Twitter in the country, two days after the social media company removed a post from president Muhammadu Buhari that threatened to punish regional secessionists.

The information minister, Lai Mohammed, said the government had acted because of "the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria's corporate existence".

How amusing it is to see a terrorist-sympathizing president (one who has allowed Christians to be butchered en masse for years) go to war with Marxist-adjacent woke bois who want to punish us all for wrongthink.

Nigeria's government is also salty about Twitter choosing its neighbor, Ghana, for its first African office. It's a typical love-hate relationship that tends to form between tyrants.

If anyone needs me, I'll just be over here watching the drama unfold!

Oh, and for all you wonderful Nigerian princes that are always emailing me, if you need an awesome social platform to replace the Orwellian poster kids at Twitter, make sure to subscribe to Not The Bee!
