Facebook and Twitter cleaning up fake accounts

Facebook is cleaning up its act...or at least trying to. Facebook says its disabled nearly 1.3 billion "fake" accounts over the past two quarters. In a blog post, the company claimed that the most of the accounts "were disabled within minutes of registration".

Twitter also getting in on the action, seeking To Limit The Visibility Of Tweets From People Behaving Badly - step in the right direction, or impossible to police?
