July 9)The recent decision by Twitter to suspend more than one million accounts per day caused fears that the number of monthly active users will fall. This has had a negative effect on the stock price which declined as much as 8.2 percent Monday morning.
|A recent Digital Journal article reported the Washington Post as saying that over May and June Twitter had suspended 70 million accounts and some expressed concerns that the user base would be negatively impacted by the move even though many of the accounts were inactive. The suspensions were also often related to suspected malicious activity. The rate of suspensions has more than doubled that back in October of 2017.|
