President Muhammadu Buhari has now officially joined Koo network after the suspension of Twitter indefinitely.
Gatekeepers News reports that President Buhari with the handle @muhammadubuhari already has over 1,700 followers after opening the Indian microblogging platform, Koo.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed announced Twitter’s suspension on June 4, two days after the social media giant deleted Buhari’s ‘civil war’ remark.
The Nigerian Government further directed telecoms operators to enforce the Twitter suspension.
Koo took advantage of the Twitter clash with the Nigerian government and immediately announced its presence in the country.
“Koo is now available in Nigeria. We are thinking of enabling the local language there as well. He further added that they are considering introducing a local Nigerian language into the Koo app.
“Nigeria is similar to India in terms of language diversity. It has hundreds of regional languages. Koo has a global outlook and will enable micro-blogging in countries that need it the most. We have built a scalable platform, and while we are still enhancing the product, it’s already available for use in multiple countries today,” Koo founder and CEO, Aprameya Radhakrishna, announced on June 5.
