Indian microblogging app Koo has got a big success. The government of Nigeria has made its official account on the Indian microblogging platform Koo. The Nigerian government has taken this step within a few days of banning Twitter.
Now Koo’s reach outside India too
Koo co-founder Apramaya Radhakrishna has welcomed the Nigerian government to the microblogging platform. He tweeted on Thursday, ‘Welcome to the official handle of the Government of Nigeria on Ku India! Now we are expanding our reach outside India also. On June 5, Nigeria decided to ban Twitter after it deleted a post by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
Koo has emerged as an alternative to many ministries
Indian microblogging platform Koo took this opportunity and announced its plans to expand into the African country by introducing the local language of Nigeria on the platform. Radhakrishna tweeted on Saturday, ‘Ku India is now available in Nigeria. We are thinking of adding a local language there. What do you say?’ Ku provides access to content in regional languages. Koo has also emerged as an alternative to several central ministries in the Government of India. Koo was among the first major social media firms to announce compliance with the new guidelines.
