Indian micro-blogging social media company Koo is planning to expand its footprint in Nigeria. The company co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna hinted about the move from his Twitter handle.
The Indian company’s interest in the African country was roused after Twitter was suspended due to violation of rules. The US-based micro-blogging site had deleted the country’s President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet.
Koo co-founder, Aprameya Radhakrishna said in his tweet, “@kooindia is available in Nigeria. We’re thinking of enabling the local languages there too. What say?”
Koo founder Aprameya Radhakrishna also got various responses for the tweet suggesting new features that could help the platform gain presence and fill the void left behind by Twitter.
Nigerian telecoms firms blocked access to Twitter on Saturday following a regulatory directive aimed at suspending the U.S. social media giant indefinitely, a move criticised by rights campaigners and diplomats as a gag on free speech.
Nigeria’s government said on Friday it had suspended Twitter’s activities indefinitely, two days after the platform removed a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that threatened to punish regional secessionists in the West African country.
