Twitter Deletes 10,000 Accounts After Democrats Asked Them To

By

Talk about rigging an election. Twitter has deleted more than 10,000 accounts that were flagged by the Democrat Party for removal for resembling Democrat accounts.

And the move comes just days before one of the most important midterm elections of all time, Reuters reported.

While the prevalence of misinformation campaigns have so far been modest in the run-up to the Congressional elections on Nov. 6, Democrats are hoping the flagging operation will help them react quickly if there is a flurry of such messages in the coming days.

The Tweets included ones that discouraged Democratic men from voting, saying that would drown out the voice of women, according to two of the sources familiar with the flagging operation.
