Russia gives Twitter a month’s ultimatum


Russia on Tuesday gave Twitter a month’s time to remove “banned” content and threatened that it would block the social media platform within the country if it does not comply.

Last week Russia’s media regulator Roskomnadzor started disrupting Twitter’s services in Russia, saying the US platform failed to comply with its requests to delete content related to child pornography, drug use, and calls for minors to commit suicide.

“We have taken a month and are watching Twitter’s response to the removal of banned content,” Roskomnadzor deputy head Vadim Subbotin told the state-run TASS news agency.—AFP
