Twitter Permanently Suspends 373 Accounts Tied to State-Linked Information Operations

They made up networks in Armenia, Iran and 2 in Russia


Twitter permanently suspended a total of 373 accounts from four networks in Armenia, Iran and Russia (two) for violations of its platform manipulation policies and added those networks to its archive of state-linked information operations.

Early access to the data revealed Tuesday was shared with the Stanford Internet Observatory.

Twitter investigated and removed 35 accounts with ties to the government of Armenia, saying in a blog post Tuesday that these accounts were created to advance narratives that were targeting Azerbaijan and were geostrategically favorable to the Armenian government.
