It is a joyful day for millions in Nigeria because its government today lifted the ban on social networking site, Twitter.

For seven months, Twitter was suspended in Africa’s most populous country because the platform deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari about punishing regional secessionists, a move government viewed as siding with the secessionists.

After the reversal, citizens have taken over Twitter, discussing how they missed the space.

Those who could not stay away from the site during the ban resorted to virtual private networks (VPNs).

They now say the days of VPN is over since they are legitimate users of the site.

Twitter is among the many platforms companies and entrepreneurs leverage to reach a wider audience.

According to the BBC, government has reversed the ban because Twitter has agreed to some conditions, including opening a local office in the country. Twitter is, however, yet to comment on the matter.

Below are some comments on #TwitterBan
