Twitter blocks propaganda from China, Russia and Turkey

The social network Twitter today announced that it banned tens of thousands of accounts involved in propaganda actions, and controlled by China, Russia and Turkey, after the European Commission accused Beijing of disinformation.

Twitter deactivated a “core” of almost 24,000 accounts linked to China and whose messages were played by another 150,000 accounts, which served as “amplifiers”, in propaganda and disinformation actions directed by Beijing.

The social network also closed 7,340 accounts linked to Turkey and 1,152 linked to Russia.
