Twitter Inc. has admitted that it accidentally suspended an open source intelligence reporter account, the Financial Times reports.
Reporters posted about Russia’s military buildup around Ukraine. The post has led to blaming the Russian state that many of them have launched a “bot” campaign against them.
An open source reporter used social media to provide a steady commentary on the activities of the Russian army near the Ukrainian border, based on published satellite images.
People behind the suspended accounts believe that Russian bots have led to the automatic deletion of content by Twitter’s moderate technology.
The suspension was consistent with the temporary suspension of several Ukrainian government websites and banks after a series of cyberattacks. This is the third time in Ukraine since the beginning of the year.
