What's up, folks! I hope y'all had a lovely weekend and you are staying sane and safe wherever you find yourself.

Twitter ban. From the cryptocurrency by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) prohibiting financial institutions in Nigeria from facilitating crypto transactions to the FG banning Twitter access in the country, and the proposal to change the country's name from Nigeria to United Africa Republic (UAR) - a country divided among itself - the leaders are simply clueless. They avoid tackling the needs of the citizens they govern and make decisions and take actions that worsen the situation in the country. That said, Nigerian crypto traders were able to circumvent the ban imposed on banks by switching to P2P exchanges. But it's a different case with Twitter, even if they use VPN to bypass the ban, which some are currently using, most of their Twitter followers who are Nigerians won't be online to see and react to their tweets.

Though access to Twitter is still possible through some wi-fi providers and VPN, this is not the most common way to connect to the internet in Nigeria. And with the threat to prosecute anyone that breaches the country's ban on Twitter, I don't see many Nigerians making attempts to use Twitter anytime soon unless the ban is lifted.

This act undermines the human rights of Nigerians. Many groups and institutions have condemned the announcement to suspend Twitter access and are calling on Nigerian authorities to reverse the suspension.

Back to the Patronage

This is the 23rd week of the Patronage. The current beneficiaries are @Musso and @JulyAnn. I have subscribed to both users and also sponsored as well as tipped as many articles as they published within the week. The week has ended and it's time to move on to new beneficiaries.

Patronage Week 23 Nomination Result

The call for nomination was made last week and about 15 users turned up to nominate others. This is a lot of improvement to the previous nomination. We also had some new names in the week's nomination round.

  1. @Olasquarea nominated @George_Dee

  2. @carolinacardoza nominated @Luisa_Slwzl

  3. @JulyAnn nominated @WanderingMedStudent and @SenseiZero

  4. @Gracee nominated @JonicaBradley and @HappyBoy

  5. @bheng620 nominated @noisytoothie and @helmetjetrimi

  6. @Janz nominated @ThisisGrace21 and @fredyzza07

  7. @Ellehcim nominated @noisytoothie and @helmetjetrimi

  8. @Maria1997 nominated @ThisisGrace21

  9. @FrieLincs nominated @NewrA and @JonicaBradley

  10. @fredyzza07 nominated @ThisisGrace21

  11. @Princessbusayo nominated @zellypearl and @Ellehcim

  12. @zellypearl nominated @Evedear and @Princessbusayo

  13. @ThisisGrace21 nominated @Janz and @fredyzza07

  14. @HappyBoy nominated @Princessbusayo

  15. @bmjc98 nominated @Panky and @Zeshan3333

  16. @renren16 nominated @Zhyne06e and @Janz

In the end, @ThisisGrace21 topped the nominee's list with 3 nominations. We had about 5 users - @noisytoothie @JonicaBradley @fredyzza07 @helmetjetrimit @Princessbusayo and @Janz - sharing second place with 2 nominations apiece. So I have to select one of them. After reviewing their pages I selected @fredyzza07 as she has been on here for just 3 weeks and yet to earn up to a dollar on any of her posts.

Remember the intent of the Patronage to support and encourage users, especially newbies who are getting little attention and earning little to nothing on the platform.

Congratulations to @ThisisGrace21 and @fredyzza07.

My appreciation goes out to the users who made out time to nominate other users. Thank you, guys. You can rest for now until when I come again to announce the next nomination round and I am confident you will answer my call. Thanks once more.

As for me, my work continues. I have to follow the two beneficiaries through the week to subscribe, sponsor them, read and tip their posts with the little amount I could afford to give at the time.

Below are the benefits offered by the patronage initiative to the weekly beneficiaries. The nominators (users that nominated them) are not left out.

  1. Subscriber(s): I will subscribe to the beneficiaries and hopefully, other users will also get to subscribe to them.

  2. Sponsorship: I will send a sponsor offer to both users and it's up to them to accept or reject the offer. Note: You have to activate your sponsor block to be able to get sponsored.

  3. Tips: lastly, I will read and tip up to 7 articles published by the beneficiaries within the week.

  4. Nominators Bonus: The users who participated in the nomination rounds by nominating other users are not left out. Their nomination comment will be tipped by me. Also, those that nominated the users that became beneficiaries of the week will get an extra tip.

A few more things

  • To encourage users to participate in the nomination round, I will tip comments, especially nomination comments that give reasons for nominating the users.

  • I will only tip articles written in English. I can't tip what I can neither read nor understand.

  • The tip amount depends on the quality of your article. And I reserve the right not to tip your articles. As much as I want to support users to publish more, I also want to encourage them to stick to a level of quality which we will all appreciate.

  • Yes, you can vote for the same users as the user before you. As the more nominations, a user gets, the more his/her chances of topping.

I have to end this here for today. I will return soon, to seek your assistance again in nominating some users for the initiative.

Thank you all for the continuous support.

Stay safe everyone and have a lovely week!!

Love and Support.
