The government of Nigeria has officially joined the Koo app after Twitter was banned.
Shortly after the ban, the Nigerian government created its official account on the Koo app, an Indian microblogging platform. It has 12k followers and has been posting regular updates. The app is owned by Bombinate Technologies based in Bengaluru and seen as a contender to Twitter. The announcement was made by Koo co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna who welcomed the Nigerian government onboard the platform.
Rights groups have condemned the Twitter ban by Nigeria. Twitter has often come under fire in many countries over its content moderation policies and filtering methods.
