News: Russia plans Twitter block in one month if it fails to delete banned content: TASS.
MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia will block Twitter In a month the social media giant fails to remove banned content, TASS news agency quoted a senior official from Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor on Tuesday.
Russia said last week that it is slowing the pace of Twitter in retaliation for what has been described as a mistake in removing prohibited content. It threatened to completely block the US platform, leading to a growing stalemate between Moscow and US social media companies.
