religious group accounts get suspended by Twitter… The current trending tech report reaching alltechng.com ahead of Israel’s upcoming national elections, micro-blogging site Twitter has suspended nearly 600 suspicious Hebrew-language accounts run by a controversial Chinese religious group.
Meanwhile, the accounts suspended were amplifying political messages for right-wing politicians and vast majority of the content, posted behind fake names in Hebrew, focused on religion, BuzzFeed News reported on Sunday.
The controversial religious group has been recognised as Church of Almighty God (CAG) — a Christian sect, banned in China, that believes that Jesus Christ reincarnated as a Chinese woman who is currently living in Queens in the New York City.
The accounts were flagged due to what appeared to be co-ordinated amplification of content, according to a source familiar with how the CAG accounts were brought to Twitter’s attention and asked for anonymity to protect ongoing research, the report said.
However, the micro-blogging platform has chosen not to disclose any details about the CAG-affiliated suspended accounts.
A Twitter spokesperson said that the accounts were suspended due to spam violations, the report noted.
