Twitter Bans Religious Sect Ahead Of Israeli Election

Twitter has been slaughtering on suspicious accounts before election in Israel on April 9, 2019, but there has been abundance of mystery revolving around how it has taken course. A media source states that Twitter has banned almost 600 accounts engaging in strangely synchronized behavior. Most of those were allegedly distributing misinformation that assaulted the major opposition party while marketing current player Benjamin Netanyahu. On the other hand, the source also claimed that Twitter barred number of accounts from an unusual Chinese Christian sect, the Church of Almighty God, which believes Jesus has been revitalized as wife of its founder.

The exact plans are not known. The accounts were actually driving political messages for right-wing politicians in Israel, even though they did not marketed Netanyahu. This was out of the rule for them since most of their ads were religious. The Government of China is not expected to be comprised seeing that it has normally attacked the group and obliged the wife of the founder to seek asylum in Flushing neighborhood of New York City. The problem is not so much the accounts themselves as the shortage of clarifications for what took place. A spokesperson of Twitter did not answer to media questions.

Speaking of Twitter, in a tweet last week, the firm declared that it is testing new labels on chat threads. The labels—mention, author, and follow—are one more attempt to make the service easier and more conversational to follow. This might never move further than the test stage, but it is further evidence that the firm is bent on assisting consumers make logic of threads.

A few months back, Twitter experimented with “original tweeter” tag. The aim was to slash down on spam and to verify who begun a thread. Earlier, Jane Manchun Wong (software engineer) found a prototype of the same in the code.
