Twitter removes hundreds of accounts linked to Iran, Russia, Armenia

Twitter said on Tuesday it had deleted 373 accounts it said had links to Russia, Armenia and Iran and violated its policy of platform manipulation.

The company said it had deleted 238 accounts operating from Iran for various violations of its policies.

Twitter said 100 accounts with links to Russia were taken down for amplifying accounts that undermined trust in NATO and targeted the United States and the European Union.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow plans to examine the reasons for Twitter blocking accounts, TASS news agency reported.

Twitter also said that 35 accounts linked to Armenia had been deleted, adding that they were created to target Azerbaijan.

“All 373 associated accounts across the four networks have been permanently suspended from Twitter for violating our platform manipulation policies,” the company said in a blog post.
