Russia fines Twitter for not deleting posts



According to the Associated Press, a Russian court fined Twitter on Friday for failing to delete posts encouraging minors to participate in protests.

The court’s ruling was made after Russian telecommunications regulators put pressure on the platform to delete the content or block it.

According to the Associated Press, the court ruled that Twitter violated three restrictions on illegal content and sentenced Twitter to three fines, totaling 8.9 million rubles, or approximately US$117,000.

A Twitter spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The watchdog Roskomnadzor said last month that Twitter had not deleted more than 3,000 posts containing prohibited content, including information about drugs, child pornography and suicides by minors.

The regulator also said at the time that if it does not meet the Kremlin̵

7;s requirements to delete content, it will slow down Twitter’s upload speed.

A Twitter spokesperson said at the time that the platform’s policy had outlined a series of prohibited behaviors, including content involving the sexual exploitation of children or contributing to suicide or self-harm.
