Russia: Twitter's deleted content rate unsatisfactory

The Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media, also known as Roskomnadzor, described on Tuesday the rate of content prohibited in the country that Twitter Inc. removed from its platform as "unsatisfactory."

Roskomnadzor stressed only a third of data Russia labeled illegal, such as "child pornography, materials inciting children to suicide, and advertising the acquisition, production, and use of drugs," had been deleted so far.

The agency's deputy head Vadim Subbotin previously noted Twitter should be banned from Russia if it failed to remove banned content. Earlier, Roskomnadzor said it would slow down Twitter's traffic speed in the country over alleged violations of its laws.
