Twitter reveals why it is opening its African headquarters in Ghana and not Nigeria

American social networking platform Twitter has announced the opening of its African headquarters in Ghana.

Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey made the disclosure in a tweet he posted on Monday, April 12.

He wrote:

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

According to Twitter, Ghana was chosen to host its headquarters in Africa because the country supports “free speech” and “online freedom”.

Part of a statement from Twitter about the development reads:

“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.”
