Russia slows down Twitter over ’illegal’ content

Russia said Wednesday it plans to slow down Twitter for users in the country over what it said was the tech giant’s failure to remove ’illegal’ content. The country’s media watchdog said its decision to restrict Twitter’s services was intended to ’protect Russian citizens.’ The watchdog warned that if Twitter ignores Russian law it could face further restrictions, including a complete ban.

Apparently only Twitter can determine what is illegal on Twitter. Russia can't request tweets determined to encourage teen suicide, drug use and child pornography be removed but Twitter can block people who don't pander to Twitter ideology. CBS (left) did the same when they left out drug use and child pornography from their article.
