Norway has complained after Twitter mislablled its foreign ministry as an organisation representing Nigeria, after the social media site seemed to mix-up the two countries’ names.
To be fair, they both begin with the letter ‘N’. And they are linked by the mighty stockfish, which the Scandinavian nation exports en masse to West Africa.
Like us and many others Norway saw the funny side too, with its foreign ministry writing:
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.”
Not only had the Norwegian foreign ministry’s Twitter account been mislabelled, but so had Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere’s account and Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt’s account.
All now appear to have been corrected.
