Why Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey Opened Headquarters In Ghana Instead Of Nigeria – Naijanewsdirect

The co-founder and CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has announced the company’s presence on the African continent by launching a headquarter in Ghana.

Dorsey in a tweet said: “Twitter is now present on the continent. Thank you Ghana and Nana Akufo-Addo”

In his response, Nana Akufo-Addo revealed that he held a virtual meeting with Jack on April 7, 2021.

He further revealed that Twitter’s Africa operations will have its Headquarters in Ghana.

“The choice of Ghana as HQ for Twitter’s Africa operations is excellent news. Gov’t and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country.”

In a statement, Twitter indicated why it chose Ghana to host Africa’s Headquarters.

“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.

“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.”

“Whenever we enter new markets, we work hard to ensure that we are not just investing in the talent that we hire, but also investing in local communities and the social fabric that supports them.”

“We have already laid foundations through partnerships with Amref Health Africa in Kenya, Afrochella in Ghana, Mentally Aware Nigeria Initiative (MANI) in Nigeria, and The HackLab Foundation in Ghana.”

“As part of our long-term commitment to the region, we’ll continue to explore compelling ways we can use the positive power of Twitter to strengthen our communities through employee engagement, platform activation, and corporate giving,” it added.

This comes after Dorsey visited the country in 2019 when he attended a Bitcoin meet-up just weeks after he invested in a cryptocurrency start-up.
