Twitter Deletes India-Based Pro-Moscow Accounts Without Evidence
By sweN TR
Twitter has admitted to deleting accounts apparently based in India that is deemed suspicious in supporting the special operation in Ukraine despite not having hard evidence that they were a subversive campaign.
Although Twitter’s VP of global policy Sinead McSweeney suggested the 75k accounts removed since the operation began included financially-motivated spam, she said the platform doesn’t “currently believe they represent a specific, coordinated campaign associated with a government actor.”
So, no reason to believe wrongdoing, but throwing pro-Russian opinions under the vague “platform manipulation” policy umbrella… Nothing like unjustified censorship.
