Several Twitter accounts claiming to be owned by Black Trump supporters have been suspended for breaking the platform’s rules on spam and manipulation. Many of the accounts were using similar language and phrases such as “YES IM BLACK AND IM VOTING FOR TRUMP!!!”.
Twitter is still investigating the accounts and has yet to finalise the number of accounts it has suspended relating to this issue.
