PHCN Twitter Handle Functioned Only 24 Hours In 2 Years




The official Twitter handle of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, Eko Distribution Zone, @PHCNEkoZone has only been active for 24 hours since it was created.

An investigation by our correspondent showed that the company’s Twitter account, which was opened on November 3, 2010, became dormant the day after.

Before then, the company had tweeted only one message announcing that it could be followed on Twitter. “We are now on Twitter,” it said.

Nothing has been posted on the handle, which boasts a following of about 73 people, ever since that time.

Another handle credited to the PHCN on the social service, @PHCNnigeria, which was opened on April 10, 2011, was active for two days. Afterwards, it became dormant.

I had issues connecting to the Internet and I decided to call Airtel customer care line, unfortunately, there was no option to speak to a customer care agent so decided to tweet @AirtelNigeria, till now, I haven’t gotten any response from that handle.
