    See What Donald Trump Has To Say About Nigeria’s Twitter Ban

    See What Donald TrumpFormer President Donald Trump backed Nigeria’s government’s decision to limit access to Twitter in the West African country on Tuesday and urged other countries to follow suit.

    “Congratulations to Nigeria, which has just banned Twitter since their President has been banned,” Trump stated in an emailed statement.

    “MORE COUNTRIES SHOULD BANNON Twitter and Facebook because they do not allow free and open speech—all voices should be heard.

    “Competitors will emerge and take hold in the meantime,” the former president continued.
    Who are they to say what is good and what is evil if they are evil?
    Perhaps it would have been better if I had done it when I was President.
    But [Facebook founder Mark] Zuckerberg kept phoning and inviting me to dine at the White House, telling me how wonderful I was.
    What year will it be in 2024?

    Twitter’s functions have been “indefinitely suspended” in Nigeria, according to the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, due to its usage for “actions that are potential of damaging Nigeria’s corporate existence.”
    The ministry’s remark about censoring Twitter was widely mocked after it was posted on its Twitter account.

    Last week, Facebook, which has been chastised for restricting primarily conservative opinions, removed a statement from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari that appeared to threaten secessionist movements in the Biafra region.

    “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to remember the destruction and loss of life that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War,” Buhari tweeted, alluding to the Biafra Conflict, which claimed the lives of one million people between 1967 and 1970.
    “Those of us who spent 30 months in the fields and lived through the conflict will speak to them in their own language.”

    Twitter suspended Buhari’s account for 12 hours after deleting the post for breaking its “abusive behavior” policy.
