Twitter has suspended more than 70 million accounts in May and June to combat fake news according to the Washington Post.
The data was provided to the Washington Post by a person with access to one of Twitter’s “Firehose” products, which organizations buy to track tweets and social media metrics.
Twitter's move comes after it faced heavy backlash from U.S lawmakers and international regulators for US presidential election meddling. It then further banned ads from Russia Today and Sputnik.
The social media platform is also attempting to bolster transparency tools as midterm elections approach.
