Twitter blocked two accounts of GRU officials accused of interference in US elections

It’s about DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.

A Twitter representative told Reuters that the microblogging service suspended the @dcleaks_ and @ guccifer_2 accounts. Both were mentioned in the US Justice Department’s indictment against 12 Russian foreign intelligence officers.

@dcleaks_ was created to publish and distribute documents and correspondence stolen by hackers from the Democratic Party. Under the account @ guccifer_2 allegedly sat Romanian hacker, who took responsibility. From the investigation of the US Justice Department, it follows that both accounts were created by a group of Russian intelligence agents.

Twitter reported only that these accounts violated the rules of the platform, but did not specify what.
