Twitter will remove blocked accounts from subscribers’ counters

Their owners will be able to restore access if they prove that they still own the account.

Twitter will remove accounts blocked from account counters due to suspicious activity. This is reported in the service blog.

Twitter found that these accounts belong to people who lost control over them and did not change the password at the company’s request. To unlock, they must confirm that they still own the account.

In a conversation with The New York Times, the service representative noted that suspicious accounts of “tens of millions” and the total number of subscribers will decrease by about 6%.

In early July, The Washington Post wrote that during May and June, Twitter blocked more than 70 million fake and suspicious accounts. This is due to the discovery in the social network of “Russian-speaking bots” that allegedly influenced the presidential elections in the US in 2016.
