Twitter bans 70-year-old grandmother for tweeting about Trump for 14 hours a day

In an effort to shut down automated accounts on its platform, Twitter has suspended or frozen the accounts belonging to real people whose behavior mimics that of bots.

One such account that's been repeatedly flagged belongs to Nina Tomasieski, a 70-year-old grandmother who tweets as many as 1,000 times a day in support of President Donald Trump, reports Associated Press reporter Sara Burnett.
