A blog post by Twitter explaining why they settled on Ghana as the headquarters for its African operations read:
Today, in line with our growth strategy, we’re excited to announce that we are now actively building a team in Ghana. To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent.
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.
President Akufo-Addo has reacted with pride to the announcement by Twitter which has come with a special hashtag [#TwitterGhana].
He says he believes the decision by Twitter to choose Ghana as its headquarters for its Africa Operations is an ‘Excellent News.
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.
As I indicated to @Jack in our virtual meeting of 7th April 2021, this is the start of a beautiful partnership between Twitter and Ghana, which is critical for the dev’t of Ghana’s hugely important tech sector.
These are exciting times to be in, and to do business in Ghana.
A big win for Ghana.
