Indian Social Media Site Koo Launches in Nigeria After Twitter Ban

By Mohammed Momoh

Indian social media and microblogging platform, Koo, has launched in Nigeria just days after the West African country banned Twitter indefinitely following its deletion of a tweet authored by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Koo has seized the advantage created by the current row and is seeking to fill the gap left by the US tech giant in the populous West African country.

Following its Saturday launch, the Indian platform said that it is now available in Nigeria and is keen on adding new local languages for users in the country and to enlist the 33 million Twitter subscribers.
