Russia’s Media Regulator Says It Will Block Twitter Within A Month If It Doesn’t Delete Tweets On Child Pornography, Suicide, Drug Use


Russian officials are poised to announce a ban on the Twitter social media network within weeks, if the platform fails to comply with demands to take down unlawful posts featuring child pornography, calls for suicide and drug use.
