A Twitter account with the handle ANTIFA_US has been outed as a white nationalist organization attempting to spread disinformation and chaos.
According to Mic, Twitter has removed the account from its platform, but would not say how many followers the account had.
“This account violated our platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts,” a spokesperson for Twitter told Mic.
“We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules.”
According to Twitter officials, this is not the first time the group has made a fake account posing as a supporter of other movements and engaged in hateful content on issues of race, religion, and sexual orientation.
