Twitter suspends 70mn ‘fake’ accounts in 2 months amid pressure from Congress & media

Sharing is Caring!
Some 70 million accounts, a number roughly equal to 20 percent of Twitter’s monthly active users, have been yanked off of the platform in May and June, as the company opts for user ‘safety’ over free speech, it’s been reported.

The social media company has exacerbated its crusade against the ‘fake accounts’ accused of spreading divisive political content in tons of messages, the Washington Post has reported on Friday.

Twitter has confirmed to the newspaper it suspended a staggering 70 million accounts within just two months, in May and June, and the purge has continued at the same pace in July.

While some have sounded the alarm that such a sweeping effort can lead to genuine accounts being wiped out from the platform along with fake ones, Twitter’s Vice President for Trust and Safety Del Harvey has brushed off the concerns, telling WaPo that the campaign has not made “a ton of impact” on the overall number of the active Tweeters.

Pesident Trump : Twitter is getting rid of fake accounts at a record pace. Will that include the Failing New York Times and propaganda machine for Amazon, the Washington Post, who constantly quote anonymous sources that, in my opinion, don’t exist – They will both be out of business in 7 years!
