Conservatives Denounce Twitter Locking Suspected Spammers

Twitter is trying to cut down the number of spam accounts on its site — but some conservative users aren't fond of the way Twitter is going about it.


Conservatives Denounce Twitter Locking Suspected Spammers

Twitter  suspended a bunch  of suspected bot accounts in an effort to crack down on spam — and some conservative users aren't happy about it.

The hashtag #TwitterLockOut made the rounds Wednesday after many conservative users  noticed they had lost  anywhere from hundreds to thousands of followers.  Twitter is  limiting the use of automation .

In a Wednesday announcement, the company said users can't send out batches of identical tweets or perform simultaneous actions from multiple accounts.

Conservative users who lost followers say that — among other things — they're being targeted and that Twitter is trying to silence certain voices.

Twitter denounced claims it's targeting a particular political base and says it unlocks accounts after verifying they're run by humans.

Several people who complained about losing followers say they've regained a lot of them.
