Mobile is eating Nigeria, according to the 2016 Twinpine Mobile Trends Report
The receipts are out. Sitting in the Finder window behind this browser is the Twinpine Network’s Nigeria Mobile Trends Report for this year. You absolutely have to read through it, but TL;DR? any one working in advertising or content creation/publishing in Nigeria that doesn’t put mobile front and center in their strategy is engaging in siesta while bicycling.
This all the major happening in the technology scene this week, have a great weekend.
