Twitter’s Chickensh*t Move to Ban RT and Sputnik After Begging Them to Advertise

In a pathetic move, Twitter has banned ads from RT and Sputnik over alleged meddling in the 2016 US election. RT’s editor-in-chief says the move will spark retaliation from Moscow, and has revealed that Twitter pushed RT to spend ad money during the presidential campaign. The social network says it will give away money already earned from the two companies.

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 posted the 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.

RT turned down Twitter’s advertising pitch, which proposed potentially investing millions of dollars. In fact, it spent only $274,100 on all US Twitter ads in 2016 – not just during the election campaign – and has further cut the ad budget on the site this year.

The ban comes a week before Twitter management is due to testify to a US House committee over its role in supposed Russian meddling in last year’s elections. Staff from the company will appear alongside Facebook and Google employees.

For a long while now, RT has reported more world news than CNN. Their assorted short documentaries of real life situations in many different countries are also very informative. They do not appear to be an arm of Kremlin to me. I enjoy all but a few of their hosts too. Broad range of topics are covered…..not so with most MSM, IMO.

Twitter, Facebook and Google employees. Let's see if any suicides happen.

I seriously feel sorry for the american people that have been reduced to this. Only 50 years ago respected and revered, today the laughing stock of the world, in no small part due to the failed Clinton crime syndicate…

Twitter is currupt as it gets. Ever since opisis when Twitter was supporting isis propaganda and still is I've been outraged by them. At least we were able to locate and learn about the chemical weapons transfers even if when reported there was nothing done about it. Watching the info on the news about an attack that you knew about and reported a week earlier but wasn't stopped is incredibly infuriating. Twitter was the vehicle for those communications. So Twitter enabled the suffering and deaths of those people full knowing the situation.

James Miller says:

That is so stupid. R t is the best info on the Internet. World wide too which nobody else covers.

Rachel Bartlett says:

Fun Fact: East Germany banned the – among East Germans very popular – magazine Sputnik in the late 80s. That, along with wide-spread election fraud, was a major reason why we took to the streets in 1989. I can't stop laughing. Never in a million years did I expect to see exactly the same crap go down in America.

TOM M says:

It all is supposed to be confusing. Misdirection is the basis of illusion. Best

Bonanny Lagasse says:

I guess Twitter never heard of the "Streisand effect" either.

Deborah Lopez says:

Chicken shit will destroy liberalism eventually.

george bush says:

The TWITTs at Twitter are just doing their Deep State masters' bidding. The Deep State can brook no opposition to it's own MSM megaphone. If RT agreed to parrot the Deep State narrative they would be lauded. They just need to get with the program! lol
