Twitter to Stop Accepting Advertising from Sputnik, Russia Today

Twitter Inc. said that it will no longer accept advertising from Sputnik and Russia Today, pointing to the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that the two Kremlin-funded news organizations were part a Russian government operation to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Sputnik and Russia Today, also known as RT, won’t lose their ability to post to Twitter — meaning they can continue using the service to circulate articles, videos and opinion pieces.
