Russia-Ukraine war: Following Russia's move to block social media sites amid ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Twitter has launched a privacy-protected version of its site in an bid to bypass surveillance and censorship imposed by Russia restricting access to its service in the country.
It may be noted that the term "dark web" connotes illegal sites such as the now-defunct Silk Road drug market, it is also often used by people seeking to remain anonymous for their safety and also to access sites censored by repressive governments.
Russia has blocked access to Facebook and has limited Twitter in an attempt to try to restrict the flow of information about its war in Ukraine. Both companies have said they are working on restoring access to people inside Russia even as they restrict the country's state media from their services, as per Associated Press report.
Facebook and other sites such as the BBC also have versions accessible on Tor. Twitter's version has been in the works for some time, since before the Russian invasion, the company confirmed Wednesday.
