Nigerian govt adopts Koo
Nearly a week after banning American microblogging site Twitter indefinitely, the Nigerian government embraced its Indian alternative Koo.
The Nigerian government now has a verified account (@Nigeriagov) on Koo, and is followed by 12k people. It has also started putting out regular official updates on the platform and has written over 20 posts.
Koo had made an entry into Nigeria after Twitter was banned in the country for deleting an “offensive” post by President Muhammadu Buhari. Shortly after the ban on June 5, Koo started its services there.
Koo, owned by Bombinate Technologies, has been touted as India’s alternative to Twitter, after it was founded in March 2020. It has over 6 million users in India and several politicians, especially belonging to BJP.
