Twitter on Tuesday touted victories in the battle against tweets promoting extremist violence, saying it has been vanquishing those kinds of accounts before governments even ask. Twitter highlighted progress in its latest transparency report, noting that between the start of August in 2015 and June 30 of this year it has suspended 935,897 accounts for “promotion of terrorism.”
Internal monitoring was credited with identifying the bulk of accounts shuttered for these reasons, with less than one percent of the suspensions in the first half of this year resulting from government requests. Twitter removed 299,649 accounts during the first half of this year for such activity, according to the report. The figure represented a drop from the prior six months, and three-quarters of the accounts were suspended before firing off a single tweet, according to Twitter.
But According to news reaching NaijaPrey Media, The government has reported the hashtag #ENDSARS as spam so that it cannot trend again. Twitter is suspending accounts that tweets it.
You see how wicked the government is?
