Twitter Shuts 201 Accounts Tied To Russian Operatives

0

Twitter said Thursday it had shut down 201 accounts that were tied to the same Russian operatives who posted thousands of political ads on Facebook, but the effort frustrated lawmakers who said the problem is far broader than the company appeared to know.

The company said it also found three accounts from the news site RT – which Twitter linked to the Kremlin – that spent $274,100 in ads on its platform in 2016.
