Twitter to maintain cooperation with FBI after Russian charges


(MENAFN) Following the indictment of thirteen Russians over creating fake account on twitter
for US 2016 election meddling, twitter
has reaffirmed its determination to keep cooperation with the FBI.

The efforts to exploit twitter
in meddling with the presidential elections
are a breach for the company's policy, a spokesperson for twitter
reportedly confirmed.

In his statement, the spokesperson declared "Russian efforts to disrupt the 2016 U.S. election, in part by abusing social media platforms, go against everything we at Twitter believe. Any activity of this kind is intolerable, and we all must do more to prevent it."

The spokesperson continued "we look forward to working with the FBI Task Force to assist companies and the public in identifying foreign manipulation efforts through social media platforms."
