Twitter removed some accounts based on the tip provided by the FBI.
As there was an attempt to disrupt the public conversation during last night’s first Presidential Debate for the US 2020 Presidential Election, Twitter removed 130 Iranian twitter accounts.
“We identified these accounts quickly, removed them from Twitter, and shared full details with our peers, as standard,” the Twitter tweeted today.
Earlier this year, Twitter also removed user accounts for sharing the same message about planning to vote for Donald Trump using a technique the company described as copypasta.
Further added, “As standard, the accounts and their content will be published in full once our investigation is complete” on the Transparency portal’s section for influence operations.
Where Twitter previously removed accounts tied to PeaceData, a news site that published misleading articles about world politics, which the FBI claimed was a Russian influence operation.
