Twitter has made the policy decision to off-board advertising from all accounts owned by Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik, effective immediately. This decision was based on the retrospective work we've been doing around the 2016 U.S. election and the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that both RT and Sputnik attempted to interfere with the election on behalf of the Russian government.


Well, this is a bit of a surprise. I wonder if the intelligence community told them anything in private, because I can't imagine a revenue-harming decision like this happening without significant external pressure.
