, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Twitter microblogging network announced, on Thursday, that it has closed hundreds of accounts listed among five networks linked to the governments of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Thailand and Russia.

Twitter said, in its blog, that after an investigation it had permanently suspended all of the 1,594 accounts linked to the five networks due to various violations of the platform’s manipulation policies.

The network explained that it removed 33 accounts related to the Saudi government, noting that “these accounts were created to impersonate prominent Qatari political figures, and to provide stories about Qatari politics that are geostrategically favorable to the Saudi authorities.”

As for Iran, Twitter identified a network of hacked accounts, operating from Iran, that was “artificially inflating conversations on politically sensitive topics, including (regarding) important black lives, the killing of George Floyd, and other racial and social justice issues in the United States.” “.

“In cases where we determine that an account has been hacked for the purposes of engaging in abusive behavior, we aim to return the account to the original account holder. We have been able to do so successfully in most cases here. In all, we have suspended a total of 104 accounts associated with this campaign,” Twitter said. “.

Likewise, Twitter permanently blocked 526 fake accounts run by youth organizations with ties to the Cuban government.

In Thailand, Twitter suspended 926 accounts participating in informational campaigns “We can reliably link them to the Royal Thai Army … These accounts were engaged in amplifying pro-government content as well as engaging in behavior targeting prominent opposition political figures”.

Twitter also removed 5 Russian accounts “preemptively” that appeared at the beginning of September 2020, after coordination with other social networks and the FBI, that were linked to a fake news agency called PeaceData.
