The micro-blogging website Twitter said on Friday that it is suspending around 70 accounts that posted content promoting US Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.
Platform manipulation occurs when creating several accounts to post duplicate content but also includes 'coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account'.
The platform permanently suspended some of the accounts while other accounts will need to be verified.
Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign has been much shorter than his competitors and, so far, much louder. The rules were created to prevent manipulation and fake accounts prevalent among Russian-sponsored troll networks in the 2016 presidential election.
"You can't artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts", read the rules.
Bloomberg has also reportedly hired over 500 people in California to promote his campaign via text message and on their own social media pages at a pay rate of approximately $2,500 per month.
Bloomberg was a late entrant to the Democratic race, formally filing for the nomination in November previous year, and would be contending in his first Democratic primary on Super Tuesday on March 3. His campaign has spent roughly $452 million on advertising during the last four months, ad-tracking firm Advertising Analytics assessed this week, including $401 million on television and radio ads, NPR reported Friday.
Bloomberg campaign spokeswoman Sabrina Singh told CNN on Sunday that staff had not been deceitful. Singh continued: "Through Outvote [a voter scrutiny application] the content is shared by staff and volunteers to their network of friends and family and was not meant to deceive anyone".
