In the United States, Twitter has removed thousands of automated accounts, that were posting tweets encouraging voters to sit out Tuesday's crucial midterm elections. 

Media reports cited a Twitter statement as saying the social media company had removed a series of accounts for engaging in attempts to share disinformation in an automated fashion. 

Twitter said it appeared the account network was run out of the United States but did not provide details on how the accounts worked.

For months, Twitter has sought to eliminate automated and bogus accounts designed to manipulate the public conversation on its platform.
