Russian Has Blocked Meta And Twitter

The impact of the Russia-Ukraine war is now also affecting social media microblogging websites. Russia is adopting a very aggressive attitude. Russia has also blocked Twitter after Meta’s Facebook to stop the flow of information. Twitter said it was aware of the ban being imposed on the platform in Russia.

Throttle Connection

Twitter said in a tweet late Saturday that we are aware that Twitter is being banned for certain people in Russia. The company said that we are working to make our service run safely and smoothly. Netblox, a Russian Internet monitoring group, observed slow connections at every major Russian telecommunications provider, including Rostelecom, MTS, Beeline, and MegaFon.

Access Twitter Via VPN

Russians are still able to access Twitter through VPN services, reports The Verge, but direct connections are restricted. Twitter said that we believe that people should have free and open access to the Internet, which is especially important in times of crisis. With this, people can avoid crisis by establishing communication.

Blocked Facebook

Affected by the partial ban, Meta (formerly Facebook) said on Saturday it was blocking Russian state media from running ads or monetizing its platform anywhere in the world. The additional step came in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine when the country began to ‘partially restrict’ access to Facebook.

The site previously criticized Russia’s decision to ban Facebook in the country, claiming that it was a response to the social media company’s fact-checking and labeling strategies. At the same time, several researchers sharing Russia-Ukraine information found their Twitter accounts “unexpectedly” suspended.
