State Media Complains About Twitter Labels

Funding Label CrazeInternationalIndiaAfricaPrior to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, several state-affiliated media organizations from countries such as China, Russia and Iran received state-affiliated media tags as their accounts were de-amplified, a move met with indifference or praise by most Western media outlets.After ending the de-amplification but keeping the labels, Twitter has been giving the same label to media outlets funded in part by Western governments.
