The United States of America has reacted to the lifting of the Twitter ban in the country, Nigeria.
According to US mission Nigeria, Twitter, and other social media platforms still remain vital tools for expression, information sharing, and economic growth.
This was made known to the public via their verified social media handle on Thursday.
The statement reads, “We welcome the restoration of Twitter’s services by the Government of Nigeria. Social media remains a vital tool for expression, information sharing, and economic growth. We are pleased that access for Nigerians is #BackOn and look forward to continuing to engage and grow with you here.”
“Freedom of expression and access to information both online and offline are foundational to prosperous and secure democratic societies,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said Thursday in a statement calling for the African nation to reverse its Twitter suspension.
