Billionaire Elon Musk has apologised to Norway’s foreign ministry after Twitter mislabelled its official account and that of its staff as belonging to Nigeria.
“Sorry,” Mr Musk, the platform’s owner, tweeted.
Dear @TwitterSupport, as much as we enjoy our excellent bilateral relations and close alphabetical vicinity with Nigeria, we would much appreciate if you could label us as Norway
P.S. That also goes for Prime Minister @jonasgahrstore and Foreign Minister @AHuitfeldt pic.twitter.com/wr6cb3yv2W— Norway MFA (@NorwayMFA) December 13, 2022
Norway had complained, but in jest, after the social media site seemed to mix up the two countries’ names.
The mistake has been corrected.
