As part of its growth strategy and need to expand, Twitter Inc. has announced that will set up its African Office in Ghana as it is “actively putting a team together in Ghana”
This announcement came after Jack Dorsey, the Twitter Inc. CEO disclosed via Twitter app on Monday “Twitter is now present on the African continent. “Thank you, Ghana, and Nana Akufo-Addo,” he expressed his gratitude.
According to Twitter, this step is “To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent.”
Twitter said its decision to open an office in Ghana is based on the country’s AfCFTA negotiations, internet access, online and offline free speech policy.
“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,” Twitter added
“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.”
