Twinmark Media Enterprises was the company behind Trending News Portal, which was one of the deleted pages and website for “inauthentic behavior”.
Facebook announced on Friday, January 11, that it was banning Twinmark Media Enterprises for violating its policies.
“This organization has repeatedly violated our misrepresentation and spam policies — including through coordinated inauthentic behavior, the use of fake accounts, leading people to ad farms, and selling access to Facebook Pages to artificially increase distribution and generate profit. We do not want our services to be used for this type of behavior, nor do we want the group to be able to reestablish a presence on Facebook,” said Facebook’s Head of Cybersecurity Policy, Nathaniel Gleicher.
Facebook has removed 220 pages, 73 accounts, and 29 Instagram accounts. Adding to this, the are also conducting an investigation after finding out that Twinmark has been selling access and admin rights to Facebook pages that they created, among them TNP Media with 4.3 million followers.
