Twitter deleted 130 accounts linked to Iran during first debate
Twitter said Wednesday it removed about 130 accounts on Tuesday that were trying to disrupt public conversation regarding the first US presidential debate. The accounts, which appeared to originate in Iran, were removed based on intelligence provided by the FBI, Twitter said in a tweet.
"We identified these accounts quickly, removed them from Twitter, and shared full details with our peers, as standard," Twitter said in a tweet. They had very low engagement and did not make an impact on the public conversation."
