Twitter has transferred to the US Senate Intelligence Committee the names of 201 accounts that were allegedly used by Russia to intervene in the US presidential election, reports the Associated Press.

According to the source of the agency, the company began to cooperate with Senate after  it was accused of a non-serious attitude towards the investigation of the so-called Russian case.

We recall, on September 6, the head of the Facebook security service, Alex Stamos said that almost for two years, Facebook accounts from Russia bought and distributed political advertisements. Subsequently, Facebook blocked all these pages, because social networks forbid fake accounts.

Stamos noted that the vast majority of these ads did not deal with the topic of presidential elections in the US or specific candidates. However, through these accounts, provocative messages were spread that covered topics of LGBT, immigration, and firearms regulation.

On September 22, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said that the Facebook team will give the US Congress data on the purchase of advertising accounts associated with Russia. He talked about 3 thousand advertisements.
