PARIS (Satrapia) — Twitter said Tuesday it removed 35 “fake” accounts which he considers to have been linked to the Armenian government and was targeting Azerbaijan.

The American digital company argued in a statement:

These accounts were created in order to advance narratives that were targeting Azerbaijan and were geostrategically favorable to the Armenian government.

[...]

In some cases, the fake accounts purported to represent government and political figures in Azerbaijan, as well as news entities claiming to operate in Azerbaijan.

The company said the accounts “engaged in spammy activity to gain followers and further amplify this narrative.”

In addition, Twitter said it suspended 238 Iranian accounts “for various violations of our platform manipulation policies.”

The company also removed 100 Russian accounts for undermining faith in the NATO alliance and targeting the U.S. and the European Union.

The champion of digital censorship thus claims believing to have “a responsibility to protect the integrity of the public conversation and to offer transparency on our findings.”
