Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu, has accused microblogging platform, Twitter of engaging in fraudulent misrepresentation.
Yesufu asked the blue app to take off the “blue tick” or give a proper explanation of why it was restored to her Twitter handle, insisting she did not subscribe to it.
Her statement is contained in a post via her verified Twitter handle on Sunday.
Recall that Twitter had restored “blue tick verification” of so many public personalities and celebrities after withdrawing same last week.
However, Yesufu claimed that the action by Twitter in restoring her “blue tick verification” is affecting her, leading to people questioning her integrity.
She wrote, “Hello @twitter @verified
What you are doing here is fraudulent misrepresentation. I did not subscribe to Twitter blue. Kindly take off the blue tick or give it, its proper explanation of why you gave it. Your action is affecting me as it leads to people questioning my integrity. As well as coercing some of my followers into action or inaction based on the misrepresentation.”
