Social media Twitter has removed 130 accounts related to Iran. The company said on Wednesday that the accounts were removed in an effort to influence public debate over the US presidential debate. The Associated Press (AP) reported.
According to Twitter, the accounts were removed based on intelligence provided by the FBI. “We quickly identify the accounts and remove them from Twitter,” the company said in a statement. Immediate details were communicated to our partners.
The company said there was little preoccupation with the deleted accounts and had no effect on public discussion.
In a series of tweets, Twitter has released sample screenshots of some of these accounts, announcing the removal of the accounts.
Twitter said details of the accounts would be released after the investigation.
