Twitter Some of the accounts claimed to be American news outlets and discussed social and political issues. Overall, the microblogging social network observed that there was less foreign platform manipulation than around the 2016 elections.

Twitter revealed that it suspended 2,617 accounts since September which were linked to Iran and allegedly attempted to meddle with the US elections.

In its 2018 US midterm elections review report, Twitter further stressed that the majority of dubious accounts were proactively suspended in advance of Election Day.
