Anime Right News (ARN) — Twitter has purged a massive number of accounts, through locks or suspensions, with seemingly algorithmic precision.

At least one media outlet is claiming that Twitter purged "Russian bots."

The majority of those that have been affected have had their accounts locked for "automated behavior," requiring an activation code sent by phone to unlock them, with first-degree & second-degree relationships also being affected in the process.

Some are pointing at Microchip as to being the trigger behind Twitter's newfound level of action.

The hashtag #TwitterLockOut reached the number one position in United States trends.
