#EndSars : Twitter Crashes, Comes Back With Emoji For Campaign

On Thursday night, Nigerians experience a Twitter outage.

It led to speculations the government had clamped down on the social media app amid the #EndSARS online campaign.

But it quickly emerged that it was a global issue caused by a system change.

According to Twitter Support, “most of you should be back to Tweeting. The outage was caused by a system change initiated earlier then planned, affecting most of our servers.

We’re working hard to bring Twitter back to normal and expect things to be fully resolved in 1-2 hours. We appreciate your patience.”


What is, however, noticeable is that the #EndSARS hashtag now has an emoji, with the country’s green and white colours.

Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, had endorsed the call to scrap the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) two days ago.
