Twitter continues its struggle against the “bots” are malicious. Tuesday, June 26, the social network announced in a press release of new measures, designed to make the creation of these automated accounts more difficult, and to make those already active less visible.
A phone number or an e-mail
Without specifying the date of implementation of these tools, Twitter explains that she soon will require new safeguards when creating an account. New registrants will be required to, in effect, provide an email address or a valid phone number, and confirm (through a code or a link sent via Twitter, for example). Depending on the platform, which was tested in the upstream process, this would prevent the creation of more than 50 000 accounts per day.
