San Francisco: Twitter has apologised for taking down accounts critical of the Chinese government just days ahead of the 30th anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. The micro-blogging site wrote on its public policy feed that the suspended accounts were swept up in a weekly effort to crack down on “spam and other inauthentic behaviours”. “Sometimes our routine actions catch false positives or we make errors. We apologise.” The company added that the suspended accounts had not been reported by the Chinese government, CNN reported. (IANS)
