Twitter stänger ned ryska konton

Twitter har stängt ned 201 konton som misstänks tillhöra ryska nättroll som använt kontona för att sprida falska nyheter och desinformation.

Nedstängningen är direkt kopplad till den utredning som den amerikanska senaten och kongressen bedriver rörande rysk inblandning i det amerikanska presidentvalet. Twitter har också vittnat inför det utskott i senaten som driver utredningen. Ett stort antal av de raderade konton var också länkade till närmare 500 Facebook-sidor.

Of the roughly 450 accounts that Facebook recently shared as a part of their review, we concluded that 22 had corresponding accounts on Twitter. All of those identified accounts had already been or immediately were suspended from Twitter for breaking our rules, most for violating our prohibitions against spam.

In addition, from those accounts we found an additional 179 related or linked accounts, and took action on the ones we found in violation of our rules. Neither the original accounts shared by Facebook, nor the additional related accounts we identified, were registered as advertisers on Twitter. However, we continue to investigate these issues, and will take action on anything that violates our Terms of Service.
