On Wednesday, Twitter has suspended two fake accounts, which is running under the name of Election Commission of India. After being informed about the fake accounts on Twitter by the Election panel, Twitter immediately took the step to suspend those two fake accounts.

The fake accounts on Twitter had huge followers, one of them having over 4751 followers. The fake account in the name of Election Commission (EC) of India has used the EC logo as Twitter handle @ElectionComm. Another fake account used the Twitter handle @DalitFederation.

However, Election Commission of India yet does not have its own official Twitter account.

An official of EC said that “these were fake accounts running in the name of EC and were misleading the public. The media division of the EC asked Twitter to take decisive action against them.”

“Although there were no tweets from these accounts, they had a large following,” added the official of EC of India.
