​Twitter Has Suspended 235,000 Accounts Since February For Promoting Terrorism


Twitter has suspended 235,000 accounts since February for promoting terrorism, the company said in a blog post today. “Daily suspensions are up over 80 percent since last year, with spikes in suspensions immediately following terrorist attacks,” the company wrote. “Our response time for suspending reported accounts, the amount of time these accounts are on Twitter, and the number of followers they accumulate have all decreased dramatically.” The company said it’s also expanded the team that works on flagging such content, and claims to have made progress on stopping accounts from starting again under a new handle. In a previous post from February, Twitter said it had suspended 125,000 accounts since mid-2015.
