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.
