Twitter Africa HQ in Ghana| Nigerians Reacts

On Monday, Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s founder, announced that Twitter headquarters in Africa has been built in Ghana. Dorsey’s tweet announcing news of the hires on Monday said: “Twitter is now present on the continent.”

Ghana’s support for free speech and online freedoms made it the company’s choice for its first African location, Twitter said.
