Their security wing, Twitter Safety, had tweeted that based on their initial analysis, 'it appears that some of these accounts may have ties to state-sponsored actors'

Popular micro-blogging site Twitter announced on Thursday that it had suspended 15 accounts “originating from Bangladesh for engaging in coordinated platform manipulation.”

Their security wing, Twitter Safety, had tweeted that based on their initial analysis, “it appears that some of these accounts may have ties to state-sponsored actors.”

A second tweet was posted soon after, stating that “our investigations are still ongoing and our enforcement actions could expand.”

They will publish more updates soon, they added.

On Thursday, Facebook authorities also removed nine Facebook Pages and six Facebook accounts for "coordinated inauthentic behaviour" on the social media platform in Bangladesh.
