Throughout May and June, this microblogging service has reportedly suspended more than 70 million accounts. Similar measures will continue in July.
“It’s hard to believe that 70 million accounts were affected when Twitter only had 336 million monthly active users,” Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said.
The Company takes steps to remove user accounts in order to introduce updates to monitor content that can spread false information.
In the second quarter of 2018 Twitter users are expected to grow nearly 3 percent.
“My guess is that a large number of suspended accounts are inactive and should have little impact on the company,” Patcher said.
According to Washington Post sources, unwanted account removal is aggressively impacting monthly user declines.
“Due to technological improvements and processes over the last year, we are now removing 214 percent more accounts for violating our spam-policy every year-to-year,” the company said in an official blog last month.
In May, Twitter identified more than 9.9 million accounts potentially spreading spam. This amount is up compared to December 2017 which reached 6.4 million
