Nigeria’s Twitter suspension has cut off an estimated 40 million users. The ban, while celebrated by some, has caused a global outcry over freedom of expression, and put a spotlight on the nation’s north-south divide. Nigerian Authorities allege that the platform was being used to destabilize the country by spreading disinformation. For the record, Twitter deleted a tweet by President Buhari arguing it threatened secessionist groups in the southeast allegedly responsible for attacks on electoral and governmental offices.
