The Nigerian government on Friday said it had indefinitely suspended Twitter’s operations in the country, two days after the social media giant deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that threatened to punish regional secessionists.

The Ministry of Information and Culture accused Twitter of allowing its platform to be used “for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.
