Russia extends Twitter's traffic speed limit

Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) issued a statement on Monday that it extended the limit on Twitter Inc.'s traffic speed in the country until May 15.

Roskomnadzor stated that Twitter is cooperating with the regulating body in removing the sensitive content, and this is why the body won't block the social media, which it has previously threatened to do. The media watchdog added that the May 15 deadline was given to Twitter in order to "remove all prohibited content from the social network and bring its activities in full compliance with the laws of our country," after which normal traffic will be reinstated.

Russian courts have fined Twitter for not removing the contested data last Friday. Twitter has so far removed 1,900 of the 3,100 posts that were raised as problematic, as well as 580 out of 650 new links that have been flagged since the limit on traffic was put in place.
