Twitter Stands up to Sanders

Twitter Stands up to Sanders

( – During the Las Vegas Democratic debate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) was asked if the negative online activity of his supporters will make it difficult for Democrats to come together in November. His response, which implied that Russian bots could be responsible, did not sit well with Twitter.

A spokesperson for the company released a statement saying that they “proactively monitor Twitter” so they can find anyone who’s manipulating the platform. If such activity was found, it would be disclosed through their public archive.

Earlier this week, a spokesperson from Facebook made a statement to CNBC that they also had no evidence that Russian bots were pretending to support Sanders.

The company recently announced that they’re testing new ways to ensure fake information stays off their platform before the November elections.

The Vermont Senator has not made any comments regarding Twitter’s statement.
