​PDP gets recognition from Twitter

The PDP official twitter handle @PDPNigeria has been verified today by popular microblogging social network Twitter even though the account of the political party was created in April 2012.

This makes it the first political party in Nigeria to be recognized officially by the tech giant although several politicians within the country have been verified.

The PDP handle has tweeted 1,797 times as at the time of filing this report and has over 28,000 followers.

Following PDP on the platform are important Nigerian handles such as Olisa Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary, the Nigerian Police Force, Minister of finance, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, as well as the US Mission Nigeria to mention a few.

The verification is an interesting phenomenon on the service, often signifying that Twitter recognizes a certain handle to be an industry leader or icon.​
