President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, officially joined the Indian microblogging platform Koo.
The Indian alternative to Twitter had announced its plans to expand to Nigeria last week, after the Nigerian government blocked access to Twitter on 5 June.
Koo, became popular among supporters of the Buhari led administration after the announcement of indefinite suspension of Twitter, and the co-founder and CEO Aprameya Radhakrishna announced that the App is now available in Nigeria and is keen on adding new local languages for users in that west African nation.
He said, “Nigeria is similar to India in terms of language diversity. It has hundreds of regional languages. Koo has a global outlook and will enable micro-blogging in countries that need it the most. We have built a scalable platform, and while we are still enhancing the product, it’s already available for use in multiple countries today.”
