Many criticized the instruction, others described it as a violation of freedom of expression and the press.
El-Rufai asked the social media giant about the right to define freedom of speech rules on Wednesday morning. He’s been writing on Facebook;
“TWITTER SUSPENSION: Who is the heck to determine, impose and apply its misinformed dual standards on freedom of speech, dissemination of information, and democratic government in any sovereign nation?”
In addition, Igor Zhdanov criticized the deletion of President Buharis’ tweet on the Russian media company RT. he published a video about Twitter’s program.
