A difficult world for fake news accounts: while Facebook trying to get rid of them, Twitter is trying to solve another problem: fake accounts set up by the alt-right.
White supremacist website has created thousand of the so-called “fake black person” accounts designed to troll Twitter and confuse its users: the Daily Stormer is now urging its readers to do the same in retaliation for the microblogging service suspending high-profile rightwing users.
The website founder announced a big campaign coming up to “teach Twitter what happens when you mess with Republicans.” The instructions were published for everyone to use and create fake black accounts. As you may remember, Twitter has been clamping down on hate speech after updating its “hateful conduct policy” and introducing new instruments to allow users to mute specific conversations or phrases from their notifications.
Twitter announced that its hateful conduct policy was aimed at preventing targeting people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, etc. As a result, some alt-right Twitter users have had their accounts banned for breaching the policy. In response, they describe the “great purge” as “corporate Stalinism”.
So far, it’s unclear what the alt-right is going to do with these newly created fake black Twitter accounts, but he seems intent on damaging the social network, arguing that it won’t be able to maintain its prominent role in the social networking market when it bans all non-liberal political accounts and becomes a “safespace hugbox”. His Twitter users who created fake accounts were ordered to wait for further instructions. What Twitter thinks about this craze is also unknown.

|I heard that Whoever did NOT vote for Hillery C was a Racist. If so there are a lot of them. It does not matter what laws are passed and what rules are created. Hate is learned behavior. Usually learned by and from the actions of others. Now if they can outlaw stupidity most hate would also fade.|
|So the white supremacists are having their accounts banned, whatever. And in "retaliation", they create fake "black" person accounts which will also eventually get banned for purposefully breaking Twitter's policies? I don't get it.|
|Looking for rational thought from Nazis is an impossible task.And if all they did was criticize they would not have been blocked. It's the hate speech and lies/ Anyone who believes the poor white people are targeted is silly person||
