Micro micro-blogging company Koo plans to expand its track record in Nigeria. The company’s founder Aprameya Radhakrishna spoke about the move on Twitter.
An Indian company’s interest in an African country has risen following the suspension of Twitter for violating the rules. The site, which has small American blogs, has deleted a tweet from President Muhammad Buhari.
Koo’s founder, Aprameya Radhakrishna said in his tweet, “@kooindia is found in Nigeria. We are also considering making local languages work there as well. What do you say?”
Koo founder Aprameya Radhakrishna also received various tweet responses suggesting new features that could help the platform exist and fill the void left by Twitter.
Koo was introduced in India last year and has secured $ 30 million in funding from investors such as Tiger Global. Koo’s founder and chief executive Aprameya Radhakrishna says the start of this “has some ambitious plans to grow into one of the world’s largest social media platforms” and calls for strong domestic support for this purpose.
Nigerian telecommunications companies blocked access to Twitter on Saturday following a regulatory order aimed at permanently suspending the US media giant, an act that has been criticized by human rights activists and officials as a free speech riot.
The Nigerian government said on Friday it had suspended Twitter activities, two days after the forum removed a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari who threatened to punish West African regional separatists.
Twitter had earlier said it was investigating its “deep” suspension by the Nigerian government.
The Buhari government, which controls Africa’s largest economy, last year passed a law regulating social media following protests against police brutality that angered the Twitter campaign.
