Why didn't I think of that: Nigeria bans twitter after deleting President's Tweet

    The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.

    The Minister said the Federal Government has also directed the National Broadcasting l Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.

    It just makes you want to punch a hole in the wall, doesn’t it?

    Twitter is literally being blocked because they were censoring the political discourse of Nigeria. When that happens, they come out and say Nigeria is against freedom of speech.

    It’s hard to believe it’s even real. It seems like satire.

    The temerity of these Nigerians, letting a democratically elected government censor a private media corporation instead of just vice versa.

    Conservatives, how much does it hurt to realise that the President of Nigeria was able to ban twitter, but the President of the United States was not?

    Hopefully you slowly begin to realise how much the POTUS is a figurehead. Real presidents can do this shit.

    He's got his own section now "The World's Most Censored Writer".

    Some of the stuff he writes is genuinely amazing.

    The boomers will be shocked to find that as this happens, the Chinese do not invade, but instead send people to build ports so they can ship in high quality goods at reasonable prices. (Here’s an analogy: boomers thinking China wants to invade and conquer America is like a tiger thinking an elephant wants to kill and eat it. But just because the elephant is big and strong, it doesn’t mean it is a predator, and in fact has its own agenda that is totally different. The tiger can’t grasp the concept, because he wants to kill and eat everything that is smaller than him.)

    Or he didn’t want to because they’re on the same side. Twitter and Facebook serve U.S/Israeli interests. That’s why they’re banned in any respectable country.

    hes an idiot.

    the only reason US presidents cant just shut social medias down on a whim is because the strength of its "justice system", which nigeria lacks.

    Twitter and Facebook are actually owned and operated by the CIA. Once you understand that, everything else makes perfect sense.
