The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) on Monday ordered all broadcasting stations in the country to suspend the use of Twitter.

NBC announced this in a statement issued by its Director General, Armstrong Idachaba, on Monday morning.

Idachaba advised television and radio stations to de-install twitter handles and stop using it as a user-generated content (UGC) for news and programmes presentation especially phone-in.

It warned that it will be unpatriotic for any broadcaster in Nigeria to continue to patronise the suspended Twitter.
