Twitter Suspends Accounts Linked to 2016 DNC Hack

Twitter announced this week that it has suspended the Guccifer 2.0 and DC Leaks accounts which were linked to the hacking of the US Democratic National Committee in 2016.

Twitter told the media that they suspended the accounts for violating the rules of the platform. The move follows the indictments handed down against 12 Russian agents by the Justice Department which said that the accounts acted as fronts for agents in Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).

It was revealed that the accounts, which were left unused for a year and a half, had previously been suspended, albeit temporarily for posting personal information.
