Nigeria lifts Twitter ban 


  • Nigeria has lifted its ban on Twitter, seven months after clamping down on the social networking site. 
  • Nigeria's government suspended Twitter last June after the company made a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari about punishing regional secessionists.
  • Authorities accused the social media firm of siding with the secessionists. 
  • But the government said it was reversing the ban after Twitter agreed to conditions including opening a local office in Nigeria.
