According to some reports from the Beebom, Twitter has recently removed a number of popular accounts which were indulged in mass retweeting and spamming. Twitter has taken this step in reference to its anti-spam policy. The report further suggests that several of the accounts involved in the mass retweeting and spamming were popular accounts and they were being used in a coordinated manner for making posts viral. This method of mass retweeting in a coordinated method is known as "tweetdecking".
Further the report clarifies that many of the suspended accounts have got a number of followers, and the number of the followers is quite high and reaches in hundreds and thousands even some accounts have followers in millions. This is a surprising fact keeping in mind the number of followers with the account indulged in spamming and "tweetdecking". The twitter's policy claims that it will suspend the accounts indulged in spamming, mass retweeting, and forced virality would be suspended permanently, and however, there is no information as of now whether Twitter will suspend the account permanently or not.
