Twitter verifies handles of leading #EndSARS protesters


In what appears a step to check the use of fake social media accounts in the ongoing #EndSARS protests, popular microblogging platform, Twitter, has verified the handles of leading Nigerian #EndSARS protesters.

This followed weeks of request from Nigerian Twitter users to the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, that certain leading #EndSARs protesters get their handles verified.

On Thursday evening, Twitter responded by verifying handles of some selected leading #EndSARS protesters among whom are Aisha Yesufu, @AishaYesufu, and Rinu @SavvyRinu.
