Twitter suspends 235K accounts for promoting terrorism


NEW YORK (CNN) – Twitter is amping up its war on terror.

The social media company announced it suspended 235,000 accounts in the past six months for promoting terrorism.

In total, it has suspended 360,000 accounts since the middle of 2015.

The company didn’t identify the terrorist groups or specific accounts. It’s likely that many are associated with ISIS, which has been especially active on Twitter and other social networks to spread propaganda and attract new recruits.
