Twitter suspends 100k accounts for creating new ones after suspension

Twitter Inc said on Tuesday it had suspended 100,000 accounts for creating new accounts after a suspension during January-March period, a 45 percent increase from last year.

"Previously, we only reviewed potentially abusive Tweets if they were reported to us. We know that's not acceptable, so earlier this year we made it a priority to take a proactive approach to abuse in addition to relying on people's reports," the social media company said in a blog here post.

Twitter also said three times more abusive accounts were suspended within 24 hours after a report compared with the same time last year.
