The Facebook-owned social network has announced that it's taking extra steps to remove "inauthentic" activity from its platforms, including followers, likes, and comments from offending accounts.
Twitter now allows its users to report if they suspect an account to be run by a bot. This comes as part of the company's recent efforts to crack down on fake accounts in its platform.
Facebook's latest crackdown on abuse saw 196 pages and 87 accounts closed for violating the company's authenticity policies by spreading misinformation and misleading people in Brazil.
Twitter's efforts to remove fake accounts and botnets spreading misinformation across its platform have more than doubled since late last year following pressure from U.S. lawmakers.
Facebook has published a new report which details how much content it has removed that is in violation of its community standards. The report was published to help the firm build user's trust.
