Nigeria's government suspends Twitter 'indefinitely'

DW, 05 Jun 2021
Nigeria's government says it's suspending Twitter indefinitely, after the company deleted a controversial tweet from the country's president, Muhammadu Buhari.
The social media platform removed Buhari's post from, saying it violated the site's rules against abusive behavior. In the tweet, Buhari threatened to punish members of a secessionist movement in the country's southeast. Nigeria's information ministry accused Twitter of double standards – in ignoring violent messages from a separatist leader.
The country's information minister Lai Mohammed questioned twitter's actions labeling them as 'very suspect.'
