TWITTER DUMPS RT, SPUTNIK ADVERTISING CITING “ELECTION INTERFERENCE”
Final nail in free speech coffin in America as Russia’s retaliation expected
Twitter announced to day that it is banning RT and another Russian news outlet, Sputnik, from placing any advertisements. Twitter cited alleged election interference “on behalf of the Russian government” as the reason.
And who did the alleging?
The “the US intelligence community,” according to the Twitter release. “which is not something we want on Twitter.”
RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan commented on Twitter’s decision, saying it was “highly regrettable” and could serve as a precursor to retaliatory measures towards US media.
“I never thought that Twitter is under the control of the US security services – it seemed like a conspiracy theory. But now Twitter appears to have admitted it,” Simonyan told RIA Novosti news agency. “This is highly regrettable. It is particularly regrettable that now US media operating in Russia will feel the tender response of the Russian authorities.”
Simonyan earlier poste Twitter social network’s own pitch for an RT advertising campaign ahead of last year’s election, in which Twitter said that the news site would provide an “unbiased point view of the US Elections with an edge.”
“Hope Jack Dorsey [Twitter CEO] won’t forget to tell Congress how Twitter pitched RT to spend big $$s on US election ad campaign,” tweeted Simonyan.

I QUIT TWITTER IN 2016! WILL YOU JOIN ME?
I never did like Twitter. Maybe it was because it was meant for people who can only put one or two sentences together (140 character limit). [SNIP – I had just reached that Twitter limit]
Or maybe it was because Hollywood and the Washington politicians loved it. (Back to speaking in sound bites).
But when I really started to hate it to the point of deleting my Twitter account was when I realized that Twitter is just the tool of the New World Order “elite.” In March of 2016, they censored some of my posts (see TWITTER CENSORSHIP – https://www.facebook.com/groups/truthinmedia.org/permalink/834223520057596/). And in July 2016, Twitter tried to suppress the Wikileaks release of the damning DNC/Hillary emails (among other LAMESTREAM MEDIA, MAJOR INTERNET COMPANIES, COLLUDE TO SUPPRESS THE NEWS OF DNC TRYING TO RIG DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES IN HILLARY’S FAVOR – https://www.facebook.com/groups/439921809487771/).
So after the election was over, and Twitter and all the lamestream media were totally discredited, I quit Twitter and closed my account. I invite you to do the same. Because now you have yet another big reason to do it.
