Following the restriction of the famous microblogging site Twitter in Nigeria, Koo has launched in the nation. The Koo app is regarded as India’s counterpart of Twitter.
Twitter To Get Banned In India?
Several government officials and leaders have repeatedly promoted Koo as a competitor to Twitter. After Twitter was banned in Nigeria, the co-founder and CEO of the app, Aprameya Radhakrishna, formally acknowledged the app’s debut earlier today.
Twitter was banned in Nigeria after the microblogging service removed a message by President Muhammadu Buhari for breaking the rules. Taking advantage of this, Koo has launched in Nigeria and is now available to all residents of the nation.
Interestingly, Radhakrishna announced Koo’s presence in Nigeria on Twitter, writing, “@kooindia now available in Nigeria.” We’re thinking about supporting local languages as well. “What do you think?”
Will Koo Arrive In India If Twitter Gets Banned?
Koo first appeared in India a few months ago. Several Indian government officials are on Koo and utilise it on a regular basis. The Indian government has also urged Twitter users to sign up for the local app Koo.
The software is available on both the Google Play store and the App store. Over 5000000 individuals in India have downloaded Koo from the Google Play store.
Koo is leaving no stone left in his quest to compete with the likes of Twitter. Koo recently welcomed Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut on the app after the widely available microblogging platform banned her.
Ranaut’s Twitter account was suspended because her posts broke the platform’s terms of service.
According to reports, Nigerian telecom companies stopped Twitter service in the nation on Saturday. Twitter responded to the suspension by saying:
“We are highly worried about Twitter’s ban in Nigeria. In today’s world, access to a free and open internet is a basic human right. We will endeavor to restore access for those Nigerians who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the rest of the world.”
