Twitter said on Thursday it has removed thousands of accounts critical of Qatar and Turkey. "We removed 2,541 accounts in an Egypt-based network, known as the El Fagr network," the San Francisco-based tech firm posted in a series of tweets.
The company said the network created fake accounts to amplify messages critical of Qatar, Iran and Turkey. "Information we gained externally indicates it was taking direction from the Egyptian government."
