NBC Orders TV, Radio Stations To Deactivate Twitter Accounts
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has ordered all broadcasting stations in Nigeria to suspend the use of the popular microblogging platform, Twitter.
This was contained in a statement issued by its Director General, Armstrong Idachaba, on Monday morning.
Mr Idachaba said television and radio stations are advised to “desist from using twitter as a source (UGC) of information gathering for News and programmes presentation especially Phone-in.”
This comes after the federal government’s ban on Twitter activities in Nigeria.
