The Chief Executive Officer of microbloging platform, Twitter, Jack Dorsey, on Saturday, tweeted the green-white-green Nigerian flag as the West African country marked its 2021 Democracy Day.
Dorsey posted the tweet hours before the ongoing nationwide protest. Dorsey’s tweet has since attracted thousands of retweets by Nigerians.
Last week, the Nigerian government suspended the operations of his microblogging platform over alleged undue interference.
