Twitter Removes 10,000 Accounts Urging US Citizens Not to Vote
A Twitter spokesperson emailed this week that the company had removed around 10,000 accounts that sought to discourage US citizens not to vote in the country’s Tuesday elections.
The accounts were deleted in September and early October. It was noted that the number was conservative, considering that Twitter deleted millions of accounts used to spread misinformation in the 2016 presidential election.
The removal of the accounts is expected to work to the advantage of the Democratic Party, particularly for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) which worked for the removal of such accounts on Twitter and other social media platform.
