Twitter says 'deeply concerned' after Russian move

DUBLIN, March 10 (Reuters) - Twitter on Wednesday said it was “deeply concerned by increased attempts to block and throttle online public conversation” after Russia said it was slowing down the speed of the platform for an alleged failure to remove banned content.

“We are aware of reports that Twitter is being intentionally slowed down broadly and indiscriminately in Russia due to apparent content removal concerns,” the U.S. firm said in an e-mailed statement. (Reporting by Conor Humphries Editing by Chris Reese)
