Tensions between Russia and Twitter are mounting. Failing to meet the requirements set out by Russia for social media companies, Twitter can be prevented from operating from Russia.
Twitter, the great advocate of freedom of expression
Russia has requested social media companies to remove some content, but social media services such as Twitter refuse to remove it in advocacy of “freedom of expression.
On the other hand, it is not forgotten that his account was deleted when former US President Donald Trump, a politician who was not liked by Twitter’s CEO, tried to express that his freedom of expression was restricted and the elections were suspicious.
A politician who won the votes of 80 million voters in the most important country of the world is currently banned and not allowed to talk on all social media services.
Thus, freedom of expression is only valid for those who have power.
