Twitter labels Norwegian government accounts as Nigerian

Earlier today a Twitter made a blunder which seen a number of Norway’s government accounts, including the Prime Minister’s and Foreign Minister’s – have been labelled as Nigerian.

The country’s Foreign Office, which is also labelled as the African nation, has posted a tweet asking for its correct tag back.

It says while it appreciates and enjoys ‘excellent’ relations and ‘a close alphabetical vicinity’ with Nigeria, it wants to be called Norway.

It has since been rectified and the accounts have been restored to their proper titles.
