    Twitter continues to fight to keep terrorist groups and sympathizers from using its service.

    The social network announced today that in the last six months it has suspended 235,000 accounts for violating its policies related to the promotion of terrorism. In February, Twitter reported that it had suspended 125,000 accounts since mid-2015 for terrorist-related reasons.

    That means Twitter has suspended 360,000 accounts since the middle of last year.
