It seems to be that Twitter is not totally aware of the troll accounts, and maybe that’s why after suspending more than 2700 twitter accounts, they had to reinstate after it was found to be of a US citizen.

It’s quite possible that Twitter will also follow a strict profile verification like Facebook to get rid of the fake accounts, but it would be interesting to see that how much effective will be the further steps of Twitter in future.

Twitter officials have said that they will never stop in protecting the Twitter’s legitimacy, and they will take more steps to reveal and suspend the troll accounts on Twitter.
