In a month of February, Twitter has announced new rules that how users and apps can automate tweets.

Continuing its tirade against the "tweetdeckers", Twitter has suspended several popular accounts known for stealing tweets or mass-retweeting tweets into manufactured virality. Many suspended accounts allegedly stole their knee-slappers from other users without giving them proper credit, which often infuriated joke originators in the past.

Buzzfeed reported that numerous suspended accounts includes @Dory, @GirlPosts, @SoDamnTrue, @reiatabie, @commonwhitegiri, @teenagernotes, @finah, @holyfag, and @memeprovider. Nevertheless, it is the first time Twitter suspends so many accounts that engage in the practice, and some very popular ones like @GirlPosts and @Dory, which have millions of fans. They gather in private Tweetdeck groups to plot out their plans to manufacture virality. What is known, however, is that by engaging in "tweetdecking", these accounts have violated the company's policies on spam specifically those that prohibit mass duplication and impersonation.

"You may not use Twitter's services for the objective of spamming anyone".

Under the new rules, users are not allowed to "sell, purchase, or attempt to artificially inflate account interactions". More than 50,000 Twitter accounts were allegedly linked to the Russian government and may have been used to influence the 2016 USA presidential elections. However, Twitter isn't playing around any more. It's not certain that if the suspensions are permanent or not.

Twitter already made a significant change earlier this year to prevent tweetdecking; it removed the option to send the same tweet across multiple accounts simultaneously.
