Likely just an example of the new normal censorship for the end of Obama’s odious reign, or is it?
RT has been blocked from posting content to its Facebook page. The ban, according to the Facebook bot, will last until Saturday 10:55pm Moscow time (2:55pm EST) and will extend across US president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Dataminr, the Twitter-based news-breaking service that supports news agencies around the world, has denied RT service, with immediate effect. The US digital start-up has yet to provide any official explanation behind the decision, but referred to a ” review of how we work with government agencies” during a call in which RT was informed of the service denial. “Per our November 30, 2016 notice to you, Dataminr is electing not to renew the Renewal Term. As such, your Agreement ended on December 31, 2016,” Dataminr’s Legal Team said in an email received by RT on Wednesday, after the service was terminated without giving any explanation.
