Many have denounced social media platforms allowing themselves to be used to propagate hate and terror messages.
Terrorists live on the propaganda and as such these platforms aide and abet the terror, commentators have said.
As at the time of suspension, the account had over 30,000 followers and was a major hub for radical conversation.
The suspension of the account of the Niger Delta Avengers (@NDAvengers) was long overdue. Criminals should not be given access to the media.

It is irresponsible and unprofessional for @twitter to suspend the account of @NDAvengers who protect what belongs to them from oil thieves.
