Twitter shut down 1 million fake and dubious accounts a day
Twitter becomes a political war place many fake ids are generating daily basis so Twitter has taken strong reaction over fake accounts over tweeter. Twitter Inc has been suspending more than 1-million fake and dubious accounts a day, according to The Washington Post, in an aggressive bid to stem the flow of false information. The social media platform had more than doubled its crackdown rate since late in 2017, the newspaper said, when testimony from Twitter, Facebook and Google revealed startling new data showing many more millions of Americans were exposed to fake news than previously thought.
Del Harvey, Twitter’s vice president shared the news for trust and safety, told the Post: “We are changing how we think about balancing free expression versus the potential for free expression to chill someone else’s speech. Free expression doesn’t mean much if people don’t feel safe.”
Twitter is 2nd largest social media platform after facebook, This is the fastest way to share information in a small piece of content. Right now Twitter, which has about 336 million active users all over the world, has faced criticism for allegedly not doing enough to control the proliferation of bots and trolls created to spread disinformation. The new offensive against such accounts represents an ideological shift in the tech company; it had long abstained from policing potential abuses of the platform in the name of free speech.
