Twitter has decided to come down heavily on Twitter bots and fake accounts of people who may have been bought to lend their support. Twitter says the clean up is to get rid of redundant or abusing accounts. The move comes a day after Facebook-run WhatsApp decided to include a "message forwarded" symbol to tell people that they have received a mass message.

On Trending tonight, has enough been done by WhatsApp to deal with fake news. And has enough been done by Twitter to end Twitter trolls and Twitter bots.
