Twitter has handed over the profile names, or “handles,” of 201 accounts to Senate investigators. These accounts were said to be linked to Russian attempts at influencing the presidential election that was held last year. The company has stepped up its efforts to cooperate with investigators after it was criticized for not taking congressional probes seriously.
However, what remains to be unclear is whether the posts that were associated with the said accounts have been deleted from the servers of Twitter.
Twitter is scheduled to appear November 1 before the Senate intelligence committee. Google and Facebook have also been invited to testify regarding the matter.
