Twitter cracks down on cryptocurrency scams


Twitter has announced measures to combat the promotion of cryptocurrency scams on its social media platform.

Twitter said it was to restrict the operation of and investigate accounts suspected of cryptocurrency-related “manipulation” by implementing “a number of signals”.

It said these would “prevent these types of accounts from engaging with others in a deceptive manner”.

Rival social media network Facebook recently banned adverts around cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings.
