Twitter removes new accounts part of state-run information campaigns in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Equador, and China.
Twitter announced today that it removed a new batch of state-backed accounts from its platform. During this latest round of purges, the social network removed accounts operated from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Ecuador, and China.
These new removals come as Twitter also removed state-backed accounts part of extensive information operations back in January (Bangladesh, Iran, Russia, Venezuela), June (Iran, Spain, Venezuela), and August (China).
Just like it did before, Twitter has made the information about these accounts and their tweets public and downloadable for research and academic purposes.
