Micro-blogging site Twitter has taken a big action and closed 1.70 lakh accounts. All these accounts were campaigning under the guise of supporting the policies of the Chinese government. Also, incorrect information was being spread on behalf of these accounts. At the same time, the company says that users of all these accounts have violated our policy.
According to a CNN report, experts say all of the account’s tweets contained Hong-kong protests and Kovid-19. Apart from this, the Communist Party of China was also supported in these tweets. Because of this, all these accounts have been closed. Significantly, all these tweets were done in the Chinese language.
Twitter has said that we have identified 23,750 accounts, which were supporting China. Along with this, there were 1.50 lakh accounts used to promote tweets made from these accounts. In addition, the report of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute stated that the purpose of this Chinese campaign was to target Chinese citizens living abroad.
Renee Diesta, research manager at Stanford Internet Observatory, says that there were about 348,608 tweets from these 23,750 accounts. These tweets referred to the Hong-Kong protests and the coronavirus. He has further said that the US was also criticized for the epidemic from these accounts.
