Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has set up an official Twitter account, which will be handled by her team.
The account was opened because Chimamanda’s team have received reports of individuals posing as representatives of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on Twitter and trying to extort money from people.
According to her team:
“Over the past few months, we have been made aware of individuals posing as representatives of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie via Twitter and trying to extort people by email under the pretext of negotiating speaking fees for Ms. Adichie.
