Twitter blocks fake accounts suspected of spreading wrong information
Twitter has since the past few months stepped up its efforts to tackle the rise of fake accounts on its platforms. Twitter suspended a whopping number of accounts between May and June this year. The company reportedly shut down as many as 70 million accounts in the said period. The number of suspended accounts went up to 13 million accounts. The drill of spotting a fake account is, when a suspicious account fails to pass the test of verifying their phone number, Twitter shuts down that account. Those accounts which pass are reinstated.
