Revealed: How Twitter pushed RT to spend big on 2016 US election (RT)

RT is pushing back against Twitter refusing its advertising going forward. From RT: Revealed: How Twitter pushed RT to spend big on 2016 US election. “At the end of September, Twitter published a report titled ‘Russian interference in 2016 US elections, bots, & misinformation’ which included confidential data on RT ad campaigns and implied that the channel was trying to influence Twitter users via advertising on the platform. This absolutely groundless and greatly-misleading association compels us to reveal the details of the 2016 negotiations during which Twitter representatives pitched to RT a large-sum advertising proposal. It was developed around promoting RT’s US election coverage on the micro-blogging platform. This proposal was eventually declined by RT.”
