Twitter Bans Leaders of the Trump Resistance
While the brothers may seem like nobodies to you, their effectiveness at spreading propaganda on Twitter cannot be denied.
Over time, the liberal duo built an impressive, cult-like following. Now, that's all come crashing down after Twitter banished both brothers from its platform – for life. (The Daily Beast)
"The Twitter Rules apply to everyone," a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement. "Operating multiple fake accounts and purchasing account interactions are strictly prohibited. Engaging in these behaviors will result in permanent suspension from the service."…
The brothers appeared to be unusually good at getting attention on Twitter. While the Twitter statement doesn't explain what the Krassensteins allegedly did to illicitly promote their accounts, "fake interactions" could engage buying bots to retweet their posts, or buying fake followers to inflate their profiles on the site.
In response, the brothers wrote an open letter proclaiming their innocence.
The claim that we purchased Twitter accounts and interactions is not true. Like we said before, we never did this…
The idea of us buying interactions is just crazy to me. We have 1.7 million followers. Why would we pay anyone to interact with us? There is absolutely no reason for us to do this. We have always been super careful to obey all of Twitter's rules.
