    Twitter deletes over 170,000 accounts related to Chinese propaganda operation

    Twitter deleted hundreds of thousands of accounts in an effort to halt a Chinese propaganda operation. On Thursday, the social media company said it deleted nearly 24,000 accounts within a "core network" that disseminated false narratives from the Communist Party of China and an additional 150,000 accounts who amplified the messages of those within the network.

    "In general, this entire network was involved in a range of manipulative and coordinated activities," Twitter said in a blog post. "They were Tweeting predominantly in Chinese languages and spreading geopolitical narratives favorable to the Communist Party of China (CCP), while continuing to push deceptive narratives about the political dynamics in Hong Kong."

    "Ultimately our goal is to serve the public conversation, remove bad faith actors, and to advance public understanding of these critical topics," Twitter said.
