Twitter Inc. (TWTR) said it hasn’t agreed to block extremist accounts in Russia, rebutting earlier statements by the country that access was being restricted.

Instead, the San Francisco-based microblogging service said it’s been showing Russian officials how to report illegal content so that it could be withheld in the country, without committing to remove any specific accounts.
