Twitter selects Ghana for first Africa office, snubs SA & NG

Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey announced establishing Twitter’s presence in Africa, and the first office is in Ghana.

“Twitter is now present on the continent. Thank you, Ghana and Nana Akufo-Addo,” Jack said.

The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo appreciated Jack for the excellent opportunity.

“The choice of Ghana as HQ for Twitter’s Africa operations is excellent news. Government and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country.”

However, this news didn’t sit well with Nigerians, believing the headquarter ought to have been launched in either Nigeria or South Africa.

While Nigerian Twitter was flaming with mixed feelings over the issue, SA on the other hand were quite calm, as it was a bad weekend for Mzansi, due to the back to back announcement of shocking death news.

Well, here’s why Ghana was and is still the preferred choice.

“As a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate. Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.”
