According to a report from Shani Hussain of the Los Angeles Times, Twitter is suspending 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts, citing ‘platform manipulation’.

Bloomberg’s campaign has been experimenting with a wide range of strategies to form a large online following or at least create the appearance of one.

However, one such strategy — deploying a large number of Twitter accounts to push out identical messages — hasn’t gone they way Mayor Mike had planned. Yesterday, Twitter suspended 70 accounts posting pro-Bloomberg content in a pattern that violates the social media company’s rules.

“We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam,” a Twitter spokesman said. Some of the suspensions will be permanent, while in other cases account owners will have to verify they have control of their accounts.

      His big business ties, which made him a Billionaire with the Chinese, is very Dangerous to this country! Chinese have infiltrated our colleges found to be giving undeclared monies to professors, and elsewhere in our ports etc! Farms are being taken over by them! It is very disconcerting! Heck, even Senator Feinstein had a spy chauffeur working for her for @) years and no investigation!
