Twitter Inc. has suspended more than 1 million accounts a day in recent months as part of its effort to reduce the flow of disinformation, The Washington Post reported July 6.
The company has more than doubled its rate of account suspensions since October 2017 when it told Congress that Russia used fake accounts to interfere in the U.S. presidential election. It suspended more than 70 million accounts in May and June and is continuing suspensions at the same pace in July, according to the report.
Twitter could see a decline in the number of monthly users in the second quarter, a person familiar with the matter told the news outlet.
The company's monthly active user base grew to 336 million in the first quarter from the previous quarter when it remained roughly flat at 330 million.
