Twitter suspends Pamilere, 18 other influencers’ accounts

American microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, has closed the accounts of about 19 social media influencers’ accounts in Nigeria.

There has been panic all morning as many users of the birdy app complained about not having access to their handle in what appears to be a social purge.

At least over fifteen influencers were said to have been affected by the mass cleansing.

Some twitter users were said to have noticed the suspension late Monday.

“Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules,” the profile pages of these suspended accounts showed.

One of such social media influencers was the popular Pamilerin whose account handle @UnclePamilerin whose account and followers were zapped within seconds.

It was gathered that the suspension might not be unconnected to the influencers promoting a controversial trend, which must have violated some of twitter rules.
