Twitter limits content of 300 Russian government accounts
Written by wave FM on April 7, 2022
Twitter has limited content from more than 300 official Russian government accounts, including that of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The accounts will no longer be recommended in timelines, notifications or elsewhere on the site, Twitter said.
The accounts have previously been criticised for spreading misinformation during the Ukraine war, but unlike tweets from Russian state-affiliated media outlets, they have not previously been subject to specific moderation by Twitter.
Twitter has been severely limited in Russia since the Ukraine invasion.
