As stated in the message of the corporation, this was done for greater transparency and facilitation of communication between Twitter users and representatives of the state..

At the moment, only accounts belonging to 5 countries – permanent members of the UN Security Council, including Russia are marked.

The personal accounts of heads of state (including Donald Trump) have not received marks, but, for example, the official accounts of the White House or the British prime minister have them.

State-owned or state-affiliated media are those media in which the state exercises direct editorial control. If the editorial offices of the media, even if they are funded from public funds, work independently, they do not receive marks. Marks were received, in particular, by the accounts of RT and its editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan, RIA Novosti, TASS, a Chinese agency "Xinhua", English-speaking account "Renmin ribao".

Previously, a similar policy was introduced by the Facebook corporation.

In November 2017, Russia passed a law that allows media outlets that receive funding from abroad to be recognized as foreign agents. The Ministry of Justice currently refers to "foreign agents", in particular, "Voice of America" and the Russian-language editorial offices of the Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty media corporation.

Organizations included in the register must periodically report on their financial activities, and also indicate in their publications that they are "foreign agent". Violations can lead to heavy fines.
