Some Twitter users in Russia are being blocked, according to a message from the social media business on Saturday, February 26. On Friday, one day after Russia invaded Ukraine, Moscow said that access to Meta Platforms’ Facebook will be limited, accusing the company of “censoring\” Russian media. Twitter stated that it was striving to ensure that its service remained secure and accessible. When asked if Russia had talked with the corporation about any actions, it did not immediately comment. We’re aware that Twitter is being blocked in Russia for some users, and we’re working to ensure that our service remains secure and accessible. Twitter has been blocked on major networks, according to NetBlocks, an internet blockage monitoring service. On Saturday, a Reuters correspondent in Moscow said that the site was slow and that posting tweet was difficult. For years, Russia has tried to tighten its grip on the Internet and huge digital companies, in moves that critics say threaten individual and corporate freedom and are part of a larger crackdown on outspoken Kremlin critics. Last year, Moscow limited Twitter’s performance as a form of retaliation for the site’s failure to remove unlawful content. Thomson Reuters (Thomson Reuters) 2022.
