FEATURE: How to use Twitter in Nigeria despite ban by Govt
Shortly after the federal government announced that Twitter has been suspended, a virtual private network (VPN) started to dominate discussions on social media platforms.

The suspension placed on Twitter by the Nigeria government has left many Nigerians no choice but to engage the services of this medium as an alternative option to access Twitter and other social media networks
A VPN is a secure tunnel between your device and the internet. VPNs protect you from online snooping, interference, and censorship.
