Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the suspension of US President, Donald Trump’s Twitter account following his sensational tweets during the attack on the United States Capitol by his supporters.
Recall that Twitter, late Friday night permanently suspended the account of Donald Trump on the premise of preventing further incitement of violence.
A statement released by the Jack Dorsey-owned tech giant read in part;
”After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Reacting, Nigerians on social media called out APC chieftain, Adamu Garba over his lawsuit against the Twitter CEO.
They opined that if Jack can suspend the US president, then Garba greatly overestimated his importance.
See some reactions below…
Jack suspended the account of the whole president of the United States, who is Adamu Garba again that Jack can't ban permanently?

1. Donald Trump is now permanently banned on Twitter. Now we know the gatekeepers of America Democracy. America is more divided now, thanks to Big tech.
Few individuals now decide what’s right for public consumption. I won’t support Jack Dorsey banning Adamu Garba or Waspapping.

After seeing accounts of the likes of Lai Mohammed, Adamu Garba, Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad and Efcc still active, I believe that Jack went too far for permanently deleting Trump’s accounts. What's good for the goose is good for the gander therefore jack should block them too
