Twitter Deleted 10,000 Accounts for Discouraging Voting

Twitter removed more than 10,000 automated accounts from their social network because they were spreading messages designed to discourage Twitter users to vote in the November 6 U.S. elections, as reported by Reuters.

Furthermore, the incriminating tweets appeared to originate from the Democratic Party after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) started flagging them for removal.

The 10,000+ Twitter accounts were removed starting late September with the last one being disable somewhere in early October after they were flagged for misleading behavior.

Although the number of deleted accounts might seem quite significant, according to Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey, they have disabled between 8.5 million and 10 million profiles every week during 2018 because of account automation and spam spreading suspicions.

Dorsey also declared in front of the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in September that the social network also has to thwart up to 530,000 suspicious logins per day, roughly double the amount it had to deal with in 2017.
