Prominent Conservative Twitter Users Fight Purge of 'Bots'

Prominent conservative Twitter users pushed back hard after a purge of their accounts that culled thousands of their followers, as the embattled social media platform faced mounting charges of left-wing bias and suppression of right-wing viewpoints. San Francisco-based Twitter said it acted to reduce the flow of fake news and abusive content by eliminating accounts suspected of being Russian-created “bots,” but conservative Twitter users, including podcast host Dan Bongino and Michael Flynn Jr., son of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, said the company is effectively targeting their right to free speech.
