Many of the Twitter accounts deleted shared certain similarities, including the content they shared, as well as some of the accounts following each other.
Twitter has suspended a handful of fake accounts claiming to be operated by Black Trump supporters, with the social media platform saying that the accounts break its rules against platform manipulation.
In a report from the Washington Post, accounts such as @CopJrCliff and others were suspended this past weekend. Certain fake Black pro-Trump accounts were popular on the platform; @CopJrCliff, which featured an image of a Black police officer, had garnered 24,000 followers since first becoming active last week. The account became known for tweeting pro-Trump posts like “YES IM BLACK AND IM VOTING FOR TRUMP!!!” and others.
