After announcing that it will become more aggressive in combating trolls on its service, it appears it has gone too far and is suspending accounts merely because users tweets are in Cyrillic the alphabet used in Russian.
|The Cyrillic script is described by Wikipedia as follows:|
The Cyrillic script /sɪˈrɪlɪk/ is a writing system used for various alphabets across Eurasia (particularity in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and North Asia)... It is the basis of alphabets used in various languages, especially those of Orthodox Slavic origin, and non-Slavic languages influenced by Russian. As of 2011, around 252 million people in Eurasia use it as the official alphabet for their national languages, with Russia accounting for about half of them. With the accession of Bulgaria to the European Union on 1 January 2007, Cyrillic became the third official script of the European Union, following the Latin and Greek.
