Social media platform, Twitter, has explained the reason for the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet, stating that it violated one of its rules.
According to Twitter, when a tweet violates the Twitter rules, the violator is required to delete it, in order to be able to tweet again.
“When we determine that a Tweet violated the Twitter rules, we require the violator to remove it before they can Tweet again.
“We send an email notification to the violator identifying the Tweet(s) in violation and which policies have been violated.
“They will then need to go through the process of removing the violating Tweet or appealing our review if they believe we made an error.”
The controversial tweet, which was posted by Buhari on Tuesday, reads: “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Civil War.
“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
