Twitter said on Thursday that it's immediately removing all off-board advertising from two of Russia's largest media outlets, Russia Today and Sputnik.

Twitter will ban Russia Today and Sputnik, the two Kremlin-backed global news outlets, from advertising on its platform, a company official said on Thursday.

Twitter Inc.is bringing greater transparency to advertising on its social network, addressing a significant concern of congressional investigators probing foreign meddling during the 2016 USA presidential elections.

"This decision is restricted to these two entities based our internal investigation of their behavior as well as their inclusion in the January 2017 DNI report".

The web-based social networking goliath will give an expected $1.9m (£1.4m) produced using the outlets into inquire about on Twitter's utilization in "community engagement and decisions".

Off-boarding advertising from all accounts owned by Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik.

Twitter announced in a blog post that based on the US intelligence community's findings regarding interference from the two sites during the 2016 election was enough to make the decision. Twitter also said this week it will disclose more information on political ads.

The latest moves by Twitter and Facebook are signs that tech companies are seeking to self-regulate before they may get reined in by more stringent government rules.

The Russian effort to influence the election is said to have consisted of several hundred fake Twitter accounts and about $100,000 worth of Facebook ads promoting "divisive" causes like Black Lives Matter.

In a blog post outlining its plans, Twitter said it would also create stricter requirements for who could purchase political ads and impose stronger penalties for violators.

"State-owned Russian media made increasingly favorable comments about President-elect Trump as the 2016 USA general and primary election campaigns progressed while consistently offering negative coverage of Secretary Clinton".

Twitter will meet with Congress and members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on November 1 regarding these issues.

Those Russian efforts have been continuing as the US heads into the 2018 congressional elections, the senators said. USA media reports also indicate Russians purchased similar ads on Google.

In a blog post RT accused Twitter of publishing a report that included confidential data on RT ad campaigns.
