A new report says that “Ku” is now available in Nigeria as well. Its direct link is linked to the indefinite ban on Twitter by Nigeria. As reported by India Today, Koo made this announcement a day after the federal government of Nigeria banned Twitter. Koo CEO Aparameya Radhekrishna not only confirmed that the app’s services are available in Nigeria but also said that the app is also being considered for making the app available in Nigeria’s local language soon. There are 500 types of local languages spoken in Nigeria like Hausa, Lagbo and Yoruba.
After Twitter was banned in Nigeria, users turned to the VPN service to use Twitter in order to bypass the ban imposed by the government. Now the option of Ku has also come to the users. However, it is yet to be seen how many users adopt this Indian app in Nigeria.
Koo App is a microblogging site where users can express their views in 400 characters. Whereas Twitter has a limit of 250 words. Posts shared on Ku are named Koo, just like Twitter posts are called Tweets. There is an option to write in Indian languages on the Ku app. Apart from this, users can also share their point in audio and video.
If a user does not have the knowledge to write Indian language, then he can type Indian language by going to English type mode. This app has a unique feature that users can directly share their “ku” to their friends on WhatsApp and Facebook. This feature is not available on Twitter. Coupe can also be shared on Whatsapp status.
