According to netblocks, a site which estimates the economic impact of a single hypothetical internet disruption of the specified type, location and duration, Nigeria loses an estimated $6,014,390 or NGN 2,177,089,051 every day that Twitter is shutdown.

Nigeria’s draconian government had suspended the US based microblogging site, Twitter, accusing it of working against Nigeria’s interest.

The Government of the United States has condemned the ban on Twitter by the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government of Nigeria, describing the move as sending a negative signal to both Citizens and investors.

The US Mission in Nigeria stated that the Nigerian constitution provides for freedom of information.

Twitter is a social media site, and its primary purpose is to connect people and allow people to share their thoughts with a big audience.

The Twitter platform allows the famous users to get information to fans in an efficient manner. It is also a fantastic way of promoting events, new releases, or even interviews that are available online. Once a piece of information is published on Twitter it is then available for millions of people to see.
