Nigerians On Social Media Opt For VPN Following Twitter Ban




Many Nigerians, especially those on social media, have opted for the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to boycott the indefinite suspension of Twitter by the Nigerian government.
Jameela News reports that the federal government on Friday through its Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension of the social media platform’s operation in Nigeria.
According to the minister, the action had become necessary following the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
But while many have expressed dissatisfaction with the development, highlighting the benefits of the microblogging site, hundreds of citizens have also explained how installing a virtual private network app can ensure you bypass the federal government’s action and still use Twitter.
