Social media giant Twitter has removed a select group of fake accounts that were pretending to be owned by Black supporters of President Donald Trump, according to The Hill.

As we get closer to the presidential election, the attempt to sway Black people to vote for Donald Trump has been ramped up as the support among Blacks is very low. Darren Linvill posted on his Twitter account that he helped work on the piece that revealed the fake Black Twitter accounts.

“Our teams are working diligently to investigate this activity and will take action in line with the Twitter Rules if Tweets are found to be in violation. Presently, we’ve taken action on some of the Tweets and accounts … for violations of our policies on platform manipulation and spam,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill.
