People, I glanced through some of the Twitter Africa jobs and most of them are designed around the Nigerian market. In short, the big boss for this is a Nigerian woman. They want you to understand one of Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba! Simply, I expect Twitter to open an office in Nigeria by 2024. The trajectory is evident, and there is no reason NOT.
Bloomberg tried to cover Nigeria from London but struggled – and then it began to operate from Ikeja Lagos [you will not notice as the building is nondescript]. I was among the first people it interviewed when it opened. Most consulting firms tried to cover Nigeria from South Africa until they opened shops in Lagos. If Lagos is a country, it would be the 5th or 6th largest economy in Africa.
Go and improve your Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba as Twitter needs those languages for some jobs. You will be positioned in Ghana but note that you may be required to have extended stay in Lagos, So, keep your Lagos apartment as Twitter will reimburse for rents, not hotel bills, in Lagos! You get the idea.
