Twitlonger Is Now Blocked in Russia

The Russian federal media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, has blocked the online service Twitlonger, which allows Twitter users to write and post messages longer than 140 characters, on the Russian territory. According to Russian officials, Twitlonger’s website contains information that is illegal in Russia and the service denies to submit to the Russia's federal law.

      As Roscomnadzor reports on its official website, the service hasn't replied to a single request from Russian officials and hasn't removed any banned content from their base.

      According to the government’s registry of banned websites, there are at least two links to Twitlonger content that upset the Russian authorities: a story about the infamous Chechen terrorist titled 'Shamil Basayev Was Right (An Opinion Piece)', which was banned in Russia by a court, and another story titled Let’s Hear it for Putin’s Immediate Resignation and the Cancellation of Navalny’s Verdict! which was banned by the Attorney General.
