Twitter suspends several accounts responsible for stealing tweets

Twitter suspends several accounts responsible for stealing tweets

Under increasing pressure to eliminate spamming, Twitter announced last month that it has a new set of rules on how users and app can automate tweets.

"The use of any form of automation (including scheduling) to post identical or substantially similar content, or to perform actions such as Likes or Retweets, across many accounts that have authorized your app (whether or not you created or directly control those accounts) is not permitted", Twitter's Yoel Roth explained in a February update.

As it customary, Twitter is not willing to comment on individual cases, but it is thought that the company was unhappy with repeated violations of its policies against spam. Many of these accounts had hundreds of thousands and even millions of followers. They gather in private Tweetdeck groups to plot out their plans to manufacture virality.

"You may not use Twitter's services for the goal of spamming anyone".

Kris Jenner's Soul-touching Women's Day Message to Her Girls
Jenner, 20, revealed she thought she and beau Travis Scott , 25, were expecting a baby boy before she found out Stormi's gender. I have always been inspired by strong women, she concluded, like daughters Kendall and Kylie . "I had it waiting for me lol".

According to Verge, the new rules come after leaks that over 50,000 accounts linked to Russian backed organizations.

Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey recently admitted the site has serious problems with "abuse, harassment, troll armies, manipulation through bots and human coordination, misinformation campaigns, and increasingly divisive echo chambers", and asked for help assessing the "health" of the platform. However, the move of Friday to suspend known tweetdeckers is just a great action taken by the company.

Twitter continues its fight against spam and "tweetdecking" on its platform. It's not certain that if the suspensions are permanent or not.

The reason for the suspension is apparently the tweetdecking scheme (Twitter's rules prohibit artificially inflating engagement by, for instance, selling retweets from accounts with millions of followers), though that punishment may be lifted a some point.
