Twitter Blocking Cryptocurrency Scams

Twitter is stepping up its game and is blocking trolls that try to scam their customers out of cryptocurrency. According to Reuters an account was suspended last month after the fake Elon Musk account claimed it was giving away cryptocurrency. However, the more serious action taken by Twitter is they are banning ads that are tied to cryptocurrencies and ICOs. This is a good thing because it at least tries to keep dummies from getting their cryptocurrency info from trolls.

"We’re aware of this form of manipulation and are proactively implementing a number of signals to prevent these types of accounts from engaging with others in a deceptive manner," Twitter said in a statement.
