Twitter Removes 373 Accounts For Violating ‘Platform Manipulation Policies’
The microblogging site Twitter said on Tuesday it had taken down 373 accounts which it said had ties to Russia, Iran and Armenia and had breached its platform manipulation policies.
Twitter has taken down 238 accounts operating from Iran for various violations of its policies, 100 accounts with Russian ties were removed for amplifying narratives that undermined faith in NATO and targeted the United States and the European Union.
Twitter also said 35 accounts with ties to Armenia were taken down, adding that they had been created to target Azerbaijan.
“The 373 associated accounts across the four networks were permanently suspended from Twitter for violations of our platform manipulation policies,” the company said in a blog post.
