Russian gov't threatens retaliation after Twitter media ban

According to Twitter's September disclosure, RT spent $274,100 on 1,823 promoted tweets that targeted the US last year, though this tally included all ads, not just those dealing with election-related messages.

"Just imagine what happens if Russian decides to off-board Twitter advertising in Russia", the head of the Russian Embassy's press service, Nikolai Lakhonin, said on his Twitter page.

Twitter on October 26 said it had banned ads from the accounts of RT and Sputnik, citing assertions by us intelligence agencies that the outlets were part of President Vladimir Putin's effort to influence the 2016 USA presidential election.

"Having since been banned, and in order to set the record straight, we are publishing Twitter's presentation and details of the offer in full", RT said in its latest article.

In an announcement, Twitter said the choice "depended on the review work we've been doing around the 2016 United States decision and the USA knowledge group's decision that both RT and Sputnik endeavored to meddle with the race in the interest of the Russian government".

The Twitter social network has banned Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik's Russian-language commercials, the BBC reported.

Twitter also said they would use any projected earnings from RT Global advertising - an estimated €1.62 million ($1.9 million) - to fund research into how automation, civic engagement and misinformation on Twitter are used in elections.

Following Facebook's lead, Twitter only recently noted the presence of Russian agents on its platform - and their efforts to influence the 2016 USA election.

"Retaliatory measures will naturally follow". It is not clear what other correspondence took place between RT and Twitter over the issue. "The more money RT spent, the bigger the reach to American voters that Twitter would provide", it said on its website.

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told state media that the move was a violation of worldwide laws that "guarantee the freedom of speech". She called the move a "result of pressure from some of the USA establishment and security services". "This matter has not been taken to court and there has been no trial".

"And it would be much better to invest in teaching audiences in using information properly, to check information and be skeptical about sources of information". RT's editor in chief, Margarita Simonyan, on Thursday tweeted to Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey, saying that she hopes he "won't forget" about the pitch when he testifies at congressional hearings next week.

"If you look at the Russian Federation bashing info-warriors, some of them employ as much lies, as much misinformation as Russia-linked agencies do", added Ragozin.

"It's a little vague what the rules are", he said.
