Twitter regains partial access in Nigeria

There were indications on Wednesday that Nigerians may now have partial access to Twitter, almost three months after the app was banned in the country.

As of Wednesday night, access to the microblogging site had been restored through computer systems. However, trials via the mobile phone were not successful.

The Federal Government had on June 4 announced the indefinite suspension of the operations of the microblogging platform in the country, days after Twitter deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari.

But a top official of the Ministry of Information told Punch that there had been agreement in principle for lifting of on the site.

Meanwhile, Twitter on Wednesday launched a feature to tackle abuse and trolling, which had become major issues for the platform.

As the company is under increasing pressure to protect its users from online abuse globally, the new feature is expected to automatically block what it terms hate speech.
