Nigerians set to download VPNs to bypass Twitter suspension


Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express outrage over the ban on Twitter by the Federal Government on Friday.

Nigerian authorities announced the suspension of the social media giant after it deleted tweets from President Muhammadu Buhari on the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-1970.

Twitter users in Nigeria have begun suggesting ways of bypassing the suspension, with many calling for the use of virtual private networks (VPNs) to have access to Twitter without data subscription.
