Twitter was launched in 2006 and rapidly gained worldwide popularity. In 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day and a year after that it emerged as one of the top-ten most visited websites in the world.
It is said that over 90 million Nigerians have access to the internet and a huge percentage are ardent social media users. This is probably why Nigeria is known as the third most active country of Twitter, with lawmakers and political leaders signing up and releasing press statements on the platform.
Bearing that in mind, it is exciting times as Dorsey is set to visit Nigeria in November and the news couldn't be more excitedly received by his fans.
Many Nigerians are already requesting that the CEO pay a visit to their organisation when he lands and some social media users are already seeking the opportunity to pitch an idea or two to Dorsey.
Dorsey will not be the first and only global social media platform founder to visit Nigeria. In 2017, Google founder, Sundar Pichai visited Lagos, Nigeria. Pichai and his team stated that they will be training 10 million Nigerians in the space of five years.
Recall that in the same vein, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg visited Lagos, Nigeria in 2016. Zuckerberg was in Nigeria for the “Facebook for Developers Workshop” for Nigerian engineers, product managers and partners in Lagos.
