I have recently read The Red Web. It is a sad story of how Putin gradually controlled internet communications within Russia. The gradual process reminded what we have encountered back in Turkey. In Turkish autocrats’ discourse, Turkey aims to create a China-like situation but I believe more and more that they had just followed Putin’s playbook. Even the latest development of Russia slowing down Twitter is a tactic Turkey would execute if Twitter did not appoint a representative.


Russia slows down Twitter over ‘banned content’

The US company is accused of failing to remove 3,000 posts relating to suicide, drugs and pornography.
