It is learned that Twitter refuses to implement the recommendations Roskomnadzora regarding the placement of extremist materials on the open spaces of his social network. More precisely, the silence and lack of response to requests from the Russian authorities, it was regarded as a failure, writes

Roscomnadzor strengthens control over Russian online space. The Office has already sent requirements to remove extremist and terrorist pages, ribbons, accounts and advertising of all the social networks within Russia. Understanding on the part of the owners of online resources has been achieved. The problem arose only with Twitter. In the microblogging service and have not appeared responding to requests Roskomnadzora.

The Commission departments required the owners of Twitter to show all the data regarding attendance ribbons around hundreds of different network users. Everything else, the staff of the online platform obliged forcibly removed from the tapes posts wearing extremist.

In Roskomnadzor tuned seriously and say that they do not tolerate vyhodki.Twitter going. According to Russian control service western social network does not violate the terms of work for the first time in Russia, in particular the removal of inappropriate content.
