Twitter suspends another 235,000 accounts for promoting terrorism

Twitter’s war against terrorism is escalating.

The social media company said in a blog post Thursday that it has suspended 235,000 accounts for promoting terrorism in the last six months.

In total, Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) has suspended 360,000 accounts since the middle of 2015.

While the company didn’t identify the terrorist groups or specific accounts, it’s likely many are affiliated with ISIS, which has been particularly active on Twitter and other social networks to spread propaganda and attract new recruits.

“We strongly condemn these acts and remain committed to eliminating the promotion of violence or terrorism on our platform,” Twitter said in the blog post.

Twitter said it is leaning on a combination of spam-fighting tools, expanded teams reviewing abuses and new partnerships with organizations fighting violent extremism. This has helped identify more accounts and prevent those users from returning after getting suspended.
