Twitter Co-Founder, Jack Dorsey will visit Ghana next month as part of a four-nation tour of the continent.
He will also visit Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa.
Making the announcement on his twitter page he said he will spend the time with entrepreneurs.
Although he did not give details about his tour itinerary, he noted that he will spend the entire month of November in the four countries.
This will be the first time the 42-year-old internet entrepreneur is visiting Ghana.
There are suggestions that Jack is looking to make a major investment on the continent following a similar action by Facebook boss, Mark Zuckerberg in 2016 when he visited Nigeria and Kenya and making an over $20 million investment in Andela.

Twitter was launched in 2006 and rapidly gained worldwide popularity.
In 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day and a year after that it emerged as one of the top-ten most visited websites in the world.
In 2018, it was estimated that some 9.2 million Ghanaians are said to have access to mobile internet and a huge number of them are ardent social media users.
Internet penetration in Ghana is quite high with more new users getting connected every day.
This indicates an opportunity for internet businesses and that perhaps explains why the internet entrepreneur will consider Ghana to visit and interact with its entrepreneurs.
