Nigerians React To Lifting Of Ban On Micro-Blogging Site, Twitter.

Nigerians have been reacting to the lifting of the ban on micro-blogging site, twitter by the Federal government.

Some of them who spoke with our correspondent, Enyene Vincent appreciated the government for finally lifting the ban, after over 200 days, stating that the ban affected the businesses that depend on the site for projection of their goods and services.

Others warned that government should always avoid taking hasty decisions but sit back and evaluate before making those decisions.

A business owner in Uyo who specializes on hairdressing and make up told our correspondent how the ban affected his business.

You would recall that the Federal Government had announced the suspension of Twitter operations on June 4, 2021, after the social media giant deleted a post by President Muhammadu Buhari for violation of the company’s abusive behavior policy.

But after 222 days and economic losses of about 546.5 billion Naira, the Federal Government finally lifted the ban on Twitter operations in Nigeria on January 13, 2022, which NetBlocks said Nigeria lost 104.02million Naira every hour to the ban, bringing the daily losses to 2.46 billion Naira.
